In 1998, Dr. Nazzareno Gabrielli from the Institute of Scientific Research of the Vatican Museum undertook a complicated restoration, preserving the body of the mummy from further decay.
Mummified as a standard Egyptian practice at the time of her death.
Scholars believe Nesi-hensu and the linen are not connected, that she was Egyptian and had no Etruscan ties, it was probably a case of linen recycling.
The body was also accompanied by an example of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, known as Papyrus Zagred 602.
Her hair, curled in Roman style, is colored red with henna. She has all of her teeth. Her finger and toe nails are apparently painted orange, and she was buried in her shoes, fragments of which cling to her feet. On her forehead is a small piece of gilded material, probably the remains of a headdress.
