Golden Mummies

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Representation of a man removed from his mummified body, painted in encaustic (hot wax) on a thin wooden panel. Some paint has been lost from the surface, and the top part of the panel is missing. The man wears a white tunic with a dark purple-red stripe on the front (called a clavus). A white mantle is draped over his left shoulder. The man has dark, curly hair, and his beard is trimmed underneath his jawline. The style of his hair and clothing suggest a date c. 110 to 140 CE.</p>
