And he took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth and laid him in a tomb that was cut out of stone, where no one had ever yet been laid. Bible

“wrapped it in a linen cloth.” This was not a royal burial, and Joseph left before Nicodemus came with spices to give Jesus a royal burial. [For more on the women not seeing that Jesus was properly buried, see commentary on John 19:40].
