A 2,300-year old fragment of linen from the wrap of an Egyptian mummy, which is held in the University of Canterbury’s Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities, has been matched with a fragment in the United States, at the Getty Institute

The discovery was made after the fragment in Christchurch was cataloged online with other artifacts of the Teece Museum’s James Logie Collection, one of the most significant collections of Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Near Eastern artifacts in Aotearoa New Zealand.
