The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said that a team of scientists found mummies about 2000 years old in northern Egypt, with tongues of gold foil inside their mouths, which were poorly preserved.
It is believed that he placed inside their mouths amulets made of golden foil in the form of tongues, in a special ritual to ensure the ability of the deceased to utter into the afterlife before the court of the goddess Osiris.
