The Jeweled Skeletons were originally found in catacombs beneath Rome in 1578, and distributed as replacements under the belief they were Christian martyrs to churches that had lost their saint relics in the Reformation. However, for most, their identities were not known. The receiving churches then spent years covering the revered skeletal strangers with jewels and golden clothing, even filling their eye sockets and sometimes adorning their teeth with finery. Yet when the Enlightenment came around they became a little embarrassing for the sheer amount of money and excess they represented, and many were hidden away or disappeared. Koudounaris tracked down the dead survivors. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Mirror of Reniseneb
c.1810-1700 BC
12th Dynasty, Middle Kingdom
This mirror is inscribed with the name of Reniseneb who had a judicial title translated as “Great One of the Southern Tens.” Reniseneb’s coffin was discovered in 1910 during excavations by Howard Carter and his patron, Lord Carnarvon. It was at the bottom of the shaft of a pit tomb (CC25). Although the two chambers off this shaft had been robbed, the coffin and mummy of Reniseneb were untouched by thieves. Unfortunately, dampness had caused severe damage to both. This mirror was found in the wrappings over the chest of the mummy. A necklace and a shen amulet were found at the neck, and a small hippopotamus figurine  was found in the wrappings at the small of the mummy’s back.
