Around A.D. 100


This is the mummy of a man named Artemidorus. Artemidorus lived in Egypt during the Roman Period (30 B.C. to A.D. 395). At this time, it was fashionable to attach a portrait of the person who died onto the front of their mummy. From looking at these portraits we can learn a lot about what people looked like and how they dressed in Roman Egypt.
