Limestone Sarcophagus Unearthed in Middle Egypt The Egyptian archaeology team led by Dr. Mostafs Waziry working at Ghorifa site in Tuna El Gebel in Minia governorate (approx. 240 km south from Cairo). During the team’s fourth season of excavation at the site, a burial shaft was discovered. After clearing the debris filling the shaft, limestone sarcophagus was found and a number of faience ushabtis. The sarcophagus is in a good state of preservation and it has depictions of the sons of God Horus (Imsety, Duamutef, Hapi and Qubehsenuef). Preliminary studies show the name of the sarcophagus owner is “Djehuty Emhotep” of the 26th dynasty (664–525 BC) who held the titles of “Great of the Five” and “Supervisor of the Thrones”. He is the son of Hersa Est whose sarcophagus was unearthed by the sane team in their first season at the site in 2018. This discovery comes as an addition to the previous discoveries by the same team of various family burials of High Priest Djehuty and the high officials of the 15th nomes of Ancient Egypt besides 19 tombs contain 70 sarcophagi of different sizes and funerary furniture. The team is still working at the site to reveal more of what’s under the Egyptian sand. #Egypt #Egyptian #Egyptology #Archaeology #LuxorTimes #Discovery #AncientEgypt
