Tombs of the Nobles - A Hidden Gem

2017-08-20

Three Ptolemaic tombs in the El-Kamin El-Sahrawi area were discovered in Egypt’s Minia governorate according to an announcement made by the Ministry of Antiquities. The Head of Ancient Egyptian antiquities, Ayman Ashmway, indicated that a diverse collection of sarcophagi has been unearthed that dates these tombs back to the 27th Dynasty of the Greco-Roman era. Based on preliminary findings and the excavated bones of men, women and children of various ages, this is believed to be a great cemetery that served a large city over many, many years.
