Egyptian Aristocrat. According to collector Henry Sheldon, this is the final resting place of Amun-Her-Khep-Esh-Ef, son of Sun Woset third King of Egypt and his wife Hator-Hotpe. Sheldon purchased the mummy in 1866 for his home-based museum, but never displayed it because of its poor condition. Following Sheldon's death in 1907, museum director George Mead rescued the mummy from storage, cremated it, and interred the ashes in this plot in 1945. Though the identity of the mummy was never confirmed, the legend of the "Egyptian Prince in storage" has passed on to Vermont folklore.
