    1. Papyrus scrolls.
    2. Eyeliner, they called it “kohl”. 3. Internal orgnans. 4. Chest. Pharohs held the crook and flail. 5. 3. 6. Wigs. 7. Sarcophagus.8. Hieroglyphs. 9. True. During the rein of the Ptolomy line, three women ruled as the pharoh. 10. Cleopatra the VII, the last Ptolemaic ruler of ancient Egypt. She was the third daughter of Ptolomy XII to rule Egypt, the other two having treacherously taken the throne, were executed. TMI right? Just answer the darn question. I love Egypt and Greece but together doesn’t equal love in Cleopatra’s final days.
