Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the anthropological aspects of the ancient Egyptian mummy Cairo CG 61076 found in the royal cachette of Deir el-Bahari (DB 320) and labelled as “Baqt” by reassessing the published literature and photographs and producing a facial reconstruction. As she is dated in the late 18thDynasty and shows close morphological resemblance to female Royals from the Amarna period, she might well be one of the daughters of Akhenaton and Nefertiti (e.g. Meritaton or Ankhesenamun) or the enigmatic Baketaton.
