"Comparing the DNA of this Unknown Woman D and that of Siptah also found in KV35 might reveal something to add to the body of knowledge of the final years of Dynasty 19 and of course a DNA test for the putative mummy of Seti II is essential"
-- Great Article! A little off topic response, here.

I have an underdeveloped theory that Siptah=Biblical Joseph. And that his Canaanite Mother, Sutalijah=Jacob's wife Leah. The tale of two brothers was written around this time... which has also been linked to Joseph. (Note: I see the parallels to Aegyptus and Danaus, from the article, but I have them in the time of AMII).

The name Zephnath Paneah even slightly resembles. SiPtah.
