Mummified Nilotic crocodiles (French Expedition, 1798-1800).
The crocodile, commonly seen along the Nile River, was
associated in ancient Egypt with the god Sobek, and was frequently
mummified and placed in tombs at temples to Sobek. Abundant examples of
crocodiles in mummy cases made of papyrus cartonage were found at
Tebtunis in the Fayum region.
