Hi Glenn,

 

Zeinab Hashesh and Ahmed Gabr sent me a lot of photos to examine for the three individuals in the Alexandria sarcophagus.  I confirmed their assessments, including the trepanation.  Sadly, the size of that hole in Skeleton 3's skull was mistranslated from Arabic into English.  They left out the decimal point!  If you look at the scale, you will see it is 1.7 cm rather than 17 cm in size!  Zeinab is trying to figure out how to get the English versions of their Arabic report corrected.  I figured I'd give you a "heads up" on it! 

 

Best,

Brenda
