The image is confirmed as being from AP.  There were some doubts as to its authenticity expressed on Facebook during the day, but it is genuine.  If you are trying to study the image, this is the original and very much better.

Does not look like Thuyu, lets hope her mummy is not among the damages.

I'm trying to track down who these people are. Unfortunately, the publishing record for the non-royal mummies is rather bleak...and these fellows don't look like any of the royals.

One of them has a label Amen.... which may help. See

One thing that is clear is that there ought to be a proper photographic archive of Egypt- just in case.

The label with "Amun" may be simply to imply a Priest of Amun (or other Amun- related title).

You could read it something like "Amun, No.17" meaning an inventory number. An "I" at the top of the label may indicate the display room number (that's a wild guess).

I could be way off, but "Amun" may not be the name of the mummy, purely a way of storing in some order.
