Found in the Cache DB320 at Deir el-Bahari in 1881, Ahmose-Sipair was the son of Amosis I. He died at the age of  5 or 6 years old.


The mummy of Ahmose-Sapair was found in a child’s coffin of 18’th Dynasty type. It was unwrapped on September 9th, 1905 and found with barley stalks with the wrappings placed there as a symbol of immortality. This mummy looks very distorted.


Not much remained of the original mummy except for a few bones and the distorted skin. The skin was light brown in color, and still soft and pliable. The boy had a full set of deciduous teeth, indicating that he was about five or six years old when he died.
