Gerzeh Tomb 67

Wainwright in Petrie/Wainwright/Mackay 1912: 8:

"The head appeared to be severed from the body, as it was standing on its base,
and a neck vertebra was found some distance out of place between the shoulders;
yet the valuable necklace of gold, iron, carnelian, and agate beads was left round the neck.
Had a plunderer been feeling round the neck it is highly improbable that he should miss the necklace,
and disturb only one vertebra, leaving all the others in their places..."
