The Zagreb Mummy

The Zagreb Mummy was found to be wrapped in a linen book printed with the longest only existing Etruscan text. It is mostly untranslated, as such little knowledge of the language exists. However, it is believed to be a ritual calendar. The Linen Book of Zagreb is also known as the Liber Linteus.


The mummy and its priceless wrappings are kept in a refrigerated room at the Archeological Museum in Zagreb, Croatia
