256, 4.P. (Bis) Linen-khat-headdress.
Over the head of the mummy, held in position by the gold temple-band (4.P.) was a fine cambric
linen nemes-headdress completely decayed - only the kind of pigtail or chignon at the back was visible
among the oxidized linen wrappings (for chignon see photo).
On either side of the head were wads of linen packed over the temples to keep the shape of the
headdress withing the wrappings.
To this khat headdress belong Nos. 256, 4.P; 4.Q; and 45.R.
The temple band (tied to the back of the head) passed under the linen headdress behind the ears.
