This coffin belonged to a man named Paankhenamun, whose name translates as “He lives for Amun.” Paankhenamun was the doorkeeper of the temple of the god Amun, a position he inherited from his father. X-ray examination reveals that he was approximately 5’6” tall and died in middle age. Cartonnage cases were a popular form of coffin at the time that Paankhenamun was buried. After mummification, the wrapped body was inserted into the case through the back. The back was then laced up, a footboard was added, and the case was painted. Cartonnage coffins were normally placed inside one or more nested wooden coffins that were also decorated.
