Archaeologists discovered a previously undisturbed tomb in Luxor, south Egypt. The tomb contained a sarcophagus in a very good state of preservation.
According to the archaeologists leading the excavations, Myriam Seco Alvarez, the tomb dates to between 1075-664 BC. The sarcophagus was decorated with many colourful decorations, recalling religious symbols from ancient Egypt, including the goddesses Isis and Nepthtys, displaying their wings; and the Four Sons of Horus.
The tomb is said to belong to the nobleman called Amenrenef, who was a servant of the royal household of the warrior king Thutmose III. Within the sarcophagus a mummy, bound with linen and plaster was found. The tomb itself was found in the vicinity of a temple from the era of the said fourth-millennium Pharaoh Thutmose III.
