Museum administrators claim not to know the provenance of the skeleton, which was discovered only recently when they tried to "de-mummify" the piece, which was probably acquired in Egypt. The specimen is on display in the museum only on Sundays and under guard. According to the owners, at least ten efforts to steal the item have been made.

Maybe, but unlikely. Check out the eye sockets and the contours of the jaw. And then, of course, the 'body'. I believe it also has six toes as per the records. But hey! Do any aliens have six toes?? Hmmmm....
And Vic, that link you provided. Is it Italian? Heck! It's all Greek to me!!

Was mummification something they HAD to do no matter what in accordance to their way of life? Or was it only those cherised who got the ticket into the underworld?
the molars are present at birth in the mandible (jaw bone) but erupt later. When the soft tissues decay, they are visible in the sockets as in this case.
