The mummy of Djedpathiufankh had been embalmed in the usual manner of the period (21st/22nd Dynasties) with the face and limbs packed to restore a more life-like appearance.

 

The set of (two) cedar coffins and coffin board holding Djedptahiufankh had originally belonged to someone called Nesshuenopet, the surfaces of the coffins show funerary scenes.
