3,212-YEAR-OLD RAMSES-MINUS FUNGI xCleaned-upMummy Flown Home to Egypt CAIRO -The 3,212-year-old mummy of Pharaoh Ramses II was returned from Paris Tuesday, hopefully cured by radiation of 60 types of fungi and two strains of insects. There had been earlier reports that the dried remains would be received in Cairo with full military honors, but there was only a small reception committee led by French Ambassador Bruno de Leusse and Aly Hassan, director of Egypt's Pharaonic Museum. Fifty white-uniformed policemen formed a casual security guard as the mummy, cradled in its original wooden coffin and encased in a plexiglass seal, was removed from a French air force plane. The welcome fell far short of the honor guard reception the mummy received on its arrival in Paris last September for the preservation treatment. President Anwar Sadat ignored suggestions by several Cairo newspapers that he personally welcome the remains of the pharaoh, who was the ruthless scourge of the Hit-tites and the builder of vast religious structures. The coffin, covered in blue satin embroidered with lotus flowers, was lowered from the plane to a flatbed truck for the trip to the museum. A dozen French physicians and Egyptologists made the eight-hour flight aboard the twin-engine plane. They brought special equipment to measure the humidity in the museum chamber where the mummy will be kept. One French expert predicted that the dose of radioactivity, which would have been lethal to anyone living, would assure Ramses of "eternal life sheltered from deterioration." Skeptical Egyptian historians dismissed "Operation Pharaoh" as a political stunt by the French government, which paid the costs of the transfer and treatment, Egyptian scientists at the Pharaonic Museum will examine the cadaver for about 10 days in a special laboratory to determine the effects of the radiation treatment. The fungi had made wide cracks in Ramses' parchmentlike skin. "We have to see if something clearly has been done with Ramses. Then we will decide whether to put it back in the room with the other mummies or give him a special place," director Hassan said. The museum has 70 other mummies.
