1 of 7 Egyptian archaeologists have uncovered a fabulously-decorated 2,300-year-old mummy in the Saqqara burial complex.
2 of 7 "Maybe [it's] the most beautiful mummy ever found. It has a golden mask and the body is completely covered with cartonage - the most beautiful I have ever seen in my life," says chief archaeologist Zahi Hawass.
3 of 7 The cartonage - or burial material - includes painted pieces of linen glued together, and shows Maat, goddess of truth, right and order.
4 of 7 The mummy, which dates back to the 30th Dynasty (380-343 BC), was discovered last week.
5 of 7 It had been buried in the necropolis of King Teti, which contains scores of burial chambers, false funerary doors and temples.
6 of 7 The body was preserved in a plain wooden sarcophagus at the bottom of a 6m (18ft) pit filled with sand.
7 of 7 After a CT scan the mummy will be put on show at Saqqara's Imhotep museum, named after the famed architect who designed Egypt's oldest pyramid - the Step Pyramid.
