The mummy dates to the XXI Dynasty Third Intermediate Period.


The mummy of the royal prince, Count of Thebes, Pa-seba-khai-en-ipet displayed a small incision to the side of the abdomen to remove the organs, while carefully leaving the heart in place, then filling the body with embalming liquids - all indicated a high-quality mummification process.


Pa-seba-khai-en-ipet seems to have a tube or support running from his mouth through his esophagus and into the top of his chest.
Researchers are fairly certain that it was inserted post-mortem. The presumed reed was inserted from below according to the radiologists, which means it was clearly post-mortem and it wasn't the cause of death. It is fairly certain that the embalmers had inserted it via the chest cavity. Still unclear what it is. The general degree of hardness can be estimated but not the material.

Pasebakhaemipet has some a wound in his head, but it's uncertain if it was cause of death or if it happened during embalming.
