I'm sure I've said this before but the challenge with genealogy is that the farther back you go the fewer visual references there are available. This hairstyle is in the same time perior as the women's yesterday however my reference was a funerary panel that was placed either the corse or over the coffin. Visually it was very beautiful but also a little creepy too. Her code is BZ11 which tells me that originally I thought she was of the Byzantine period or Empire.
