At the beginning of the 20th century human remains have been bought by the Italian Egyptologist and the director of the museum in Turin Ernesto Schiaparelli, however the mummy was on sale without accompanying documents, and her origin remained to unknown. Was considered that the body was mummified naturally because of hot, dry air of the desert.

In a new research experts have carried out radio-carbon dating of fabrics and also the chemical analysis of fabrics by means of mass spectrometry which allows to identify molecules. Results have confirmed availability of the embalming substance which has been made of vegetable oil, wood balm, pitch of a coniferous tree, gum. Besides, traces of the antibacterial means interfering rotting of a mummy have been found.
