This gallery displays two mummies, funerary equipment, and a number of sculptures from the period of the long-lasting dynasty (332–30 B.C.) established by Ptolemy, one of the generals of Alexander the Great. Do not miss the delightful small head of Arsinoe II, sister and wife of Ptolemy II, and a long papyrus roll inscribed with the "book of the dead."
