Egyptian archaeologists have found in Alexandria, a huge sarcophagus of black granite. The burial dates back to the Ptolemaic period in Ancient Egyptian history that lasted from 332 to 30 BC, writes Khaleej Times, citing a representative of the Supreme Council of antiquities of Egypt.
The sarcophagus was found during excavations in the area of Sidi Gaber at a depth of five meters. This is one of the largest tombs found in Alexandria: height is 185 cm, length 265, width — 165. Also, experts have established that it has never been opened and who knows who is inside. Along with the sarcophagus, found the head of alabaster, which, probably, portrayed buried in the grave man.
Earlier it was reported that in the step pyramid of Djoser found the statue of the God Osiris. It was discovered in a small hole between the stone blocks of the facade, when experts cleared the gap from debris and blockages. The statue reaches only 63 inches in height and 15 inches at the widest part.
