| Senbi the Scribe |
|Location||Cleveland Museum of Natural History|
In 1910, an excavation at the site of ancient Meir, Egypt took place and led to the discovery of a small tomb. The small tomb contained 3 rectangular coffins for 3 men who shared the same name, Senbi.
The mummification of his head resulted in a very dark colour, likely from the over-use of resin. This led to the prediction that the mummy is from the Greco-Roman Era.
Resin was used for many purposes, including incense, creating ornaments and other objects, used as varnish and other cementing materials.
