After forty days remove from the natron and check that there is no moisture left in them. If the intestines are completely dried, they are ready to be wrapped in linen. The organ can now be placed in its canopic jar. Ideally, the lid should fit tightly.
Check the canopic jars on the next page to see if the intestines are stored properly.
