Nes-Min lived around 440 to 400 B.C., and, like Nes-Hor, was a priest in the Temple of Min. Nes-Min continued in the family occupation – his father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all stolist priests in service to Min. Nes-Min was 40 to 45 years old when he died. He stood about five feet, two inches tall and there is evidence that he may have suffered malnutrition of illness as a child. Nes-Min had recovered from an injury in which several of ribs on his right side had been broken, but he may have had problems breathing. He may have had pain in his lower back from a crushed vertebra. Nes-Min had poor dental health. He had several cavities and an abscess in his left jaw would have been painful, and the infection might have contributed to his death.
