Ahmose-Hentimehu was the daughter of Pharaoh Seqnenre-Taa II and Ahmose-Inhapi, and was a princess of the 17th dynasty of ancient Egypt. She died at an old age and was almost bald. The remaining hair strands were interwoven with the strands of a wig to cover the baldness, and the sides of her head were dyed with henna. The conditions of her teeth demonstrated that she may have had caries and abscess. She was discovered in 1881 and examined by Gaston Maspero in December 1882. Some researchers theorize that she was initially buried with her mother Inhapi but was later moved into tomb DB320. The mummy of Ahmose-Hentimehu was damaged by thieves when they looked for valuable items. The face suffered the most damage; some parts of the nose and cheeks are gone. The mummy of Ahmose-Hentimehu is located in Cairo Museum.


Ahmose-Hentimehu was wrapped in lots of resin-saturated lenin. Her body was stuffed with the lenin after the removal of her organs.
