Meaning of the Word 'Mummy' in Coptic

ⲟⲩⲟⲛϯ ̀ⲛⲟⲩϣⲓⲛⲓ - what's the meaning of the word 'mummy' (as in embalmed body) in Coptic?

I found the word ⲕⲱⲥ/ⲕⲱⲱⲥ but that translates to 'corpse' which is not quite what I'm looking for.

ⲕⲁⲓⲥⲓ means embalming (Crum page 121 column a) so probably a mummy would be ⲣⲉϥⲕⲁⲓⲥⲓ but this is just my guess.

Coptic Advocate 3:
Thankyou so much Admin.

Could the word for Mummy be ⲫⲏⲉⲧⲕⲁⲓⲥⲓ instead?

I can say that for the word "dead" it can be "Ⲛⲏⲉⲧⲙⲱⲟⲩⲧ" or "Ⲛⲓⲣⲉϥⲙⲱⲟⲩⲧ" so I will assume its the same thing here but am not 100% sure.
