This lady lived in the Roman province of Egypt in the first century. The plaster mask from her mummy has been damaged in the past, but clearly shows her features and dress. She is wearing double hoop gold earrings strung with beads, and other jewellery painted in yellow ochre for gold. Her hair is curled in corkscrew ringlets and when freshly painted she wore a wreath of rosebuds in her hair.
Roman women used soot to darken their eyebrows.
