Neskhons was the second wife of Theban High Priest, Pinodjem II, and appears to have died young.
Neskhons was mummified in a similar process to Ramses II and stored in the DB320 tomb, a Theban necropolis locate Deir el-Bahri, which contained the mummified remains of over 50 kings, queens, royals, a nobles.
Neskhons was buried with an Osiris-type shroud, and a heart scarab. Numerous grave goods were also present near her mummy, such as copper vessels, baskets, a shabti box, an Osiris figure, a papyrus, and four canopic containers with lids depicting the Four Sons of Horus.
The mummy of Neskhons was discovered around 1860, and partially unwrapped by Gaston Maspero on June 27, 1886. It was not fully unwrapped and studied until 1906 by G.E. Smith. Smith discovered flowers of an unidentified family near her feet, wrapped around her big toes and ankles. Smith could not determine an age at death, but concluded that Neskhons had a premature death when her hair proved dark and gray free. Smith also noted the swollen appearance of her stomach and concluded Neskhons had been pregnant or was in the process of giving birth when she died.
No confirmed cause of death.
Neskhons's coffin was originally made for a woman named Isiemkheb. The coffin was appropriated for the use of Neskhons. Upon discovery, it was noted that the coffin sustained damage from tomb pillaging, with gilded hands and faces removed.
