A strange tomb has been excavated in Egypt

In Egypt, an international archaeological mission, during excavation work in the ancient city of Oxyrinhus, unearthed a strange tomb, similar in style to no other famous tomb found in the area.

The discovery, citing a statement by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, is reported by the Archaeology News Network. It was made by members of a joint mission - Egyptian archaeologists were helped by colleagues from the University of Barcelona, working in the city of Al Bakhnas.
The tomb was found in a necropolis. Earlier in Oxirinhus, archaeologists unearthed a burial complex in which tombs were literally arranged in layers - Roman burials were built on top of ancient Egyptian ones.

Now scientists have provided a description of one of the tombs found there, which surprised them with its design. Nothing of the kind was found here before. It is established that this building belongs to the XXVI dynasty of the pharaohs (664-525 BC), also called the Sais dynasty.

“This tomb is unique because it has never been discovered in El Bakhnas before,” said Dr. Mustafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt. “It consists of one burial chamber and has an entrance from the north. Its walls are arranged so that the ceiling is not domed, as is the case in all the other tombs previously excavated in the area. "

Another feature of the burial, Dr. Waziri called that there were no ritual objects in it. This is not characteristic of ancient Egypt during the time of the Pharaohs, nor for the Roman period of this state. In all the tombs, even the poorest, previously found at least some religious objects.

According to the head of the Spanish mission, Dr. Esther Pons, in eight other tombs discovered during excavations, several Roman tombstones were found, as well as bronze coins, small crucifixes, seals, inkwells and bronze earrings. Several items relate to people who died much later in the Byzantine period.

Among the finds stands a tombstone from the tomb of a former slave. Scientists believe that this man was not only liberated, but also lived in prosperity and flourished at the time when he became free.
