Three mummies with gold tongues discovered


Recommended Posts

The archaeological mission of the Institute of Ancient Near East Studies of the UB at the site of Oxyrhynchus (Egypt), led by researchers Maite Mascort and Esther Pons, has made a series of important discoveries. This work campaign, which will end on December 10, has brought to light, among other findings, two tombs from the Saite period (664-525 BC), the last native dynasty that ruled ancient Egypt before the conquest of the Persians.

One of the tombs had been open since ancient times, but inside, reseachers found a female anthropomorphic stone sarcophagus, whose lid was somewhat displaced. Inside, there was a large quantity of tubular and spherical faience beads belonging to the funerary network that covered the deceased, as well as a stone amulet from a headrest of excellent quality.
