LONDON, ENGLAND—CT scans and the use of infra-red technology on the naturally mummified remains of a woman who lived in in a Christian community in the Sudan 1,300 years ago have revealed a tattoo on her inner thigh. The tattoo is a symbol of the Archangel Michael, assembled from ancient Greek letters. “She is the first evidence of a tattoo from the period. This is a very rare find,” Daniel Antoin, curator of physical anthropology at the British Museum, told The Telegraph. The woman’s remains are part of a special exhibition of eight mummies and what technology has revealed about their lives.


Does anyone have any theories on the inner thigh tattoo of the angel Michael on an Egyptian mummy?



I have one, but I am going to wait.

A mummy of an Egyptian woman dating back to 700 A.D. has been scanned and stripped to reveal a tattoo on her thigh that displays the name of the biblical archangel Michael.

The discovery, announced by researchers at the British Museum over the weekend, was made during a research project that used advanced medical scans, including Computed Tomography (CT) images, to examine Egyptian mummies at a number of hospitals in the United Kingdom last year.

The woman’s body was wrapped in a woolen and linen cloth before burial, and her remains were mummified in the desert heat. As deciphered by curators, the tattoo on her thigh, written in ancient Greek, reads Μιχαήλ, transliterated as M-I-X-A-H-A, or Michael.



written in ancient Greek, reads Μιχαήλ, transliterated as M-I-X-A-H-A, or Michael.

Not connected, maybe it is, but I immediately thought of the scripture in Revelations


I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”[a] He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16

On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

king of kings and lord of lords.

tattooing was taboo according to the old testament

They turned a symbol into another language.. I just want to know how...

Does anyone have any theories on the inner thigh tattoo of the angel Michael on an Egyptian mummy?

Well, its not Egypt, its Sudan for one

of a woman who lived in in a Christian community in the Sudan 1,300 years ago have revealed a tattoo on her inner thigh.


Tattooing isn't unheard of in regards to Christianity overall

Early in the fourth century, when Constantine became Roman Emperor and rescinded the prohibition on Christianity, he also banned tattooing on face, which was common for convicts, soldiers, and gladiators. Constantine believed that the human face was a representation of the image of God and should not be disfigured or defiled.7

It is documented that a monk who lived in the late fifth century had a tattoo on his thigh that read: "Manim, the disciple of Jesus Christ."8

Procopius of Caesarea, who lived during the first half of the sixth century and wrote number of official histories, once reported that many Christians were tattooed, on their arms, with a cross or the name of Christ.5

Charles MacQuarrie, in his work, "Insular Celtic Tattooing: History, Myth, and Metaphor," details how "marks" that are mentioned in the Life of Saint Brigit may have been tattoos. He also suggests that Celtic Christians approved of some, but not all, tattoos.8

At the council of Calcuth in Northumberland, the 786 Report of the Papal Legates mentioned two types of tattooing: one of pagan superstition, which doesn't aid any Christian, and another for the sake of God, which provides certain (unnamed) rewards.8

Crusaders, arriving in the Holy Land, often tattooed a small cross on their hands or arms as a sign that they desired a Christian burial.9

As far as the specific names of an angel, most likely just a leftover pagan type system where some have a specific angel they believe is watching over them..like how romans had a house god. ancient times..lot of random quirky religious things like that.

Neat find though...

Wonder if they will find tramp stamps on actual Egyptian mummys...

I believe there is going to be more to this air on TV or something, but it is always a certain amount of guess work with these sort of things and then you hear no more.
