Egyptian antiquities authorities unveiled a newly discovered burial site, showing seven tombs belonging to a Ptolemaic era family, South of Cairo.Over 50 mummies of men, women and children line the inner walls of each tomb, as well as a variety of mummified animals, namely mice and falcons.

Two mummies, of a 35-50 year old woman and her child, 12-14 year old boy, were on display outside one of the tombs, the Tomb of Tutu.Paintings inside the Tomb of Tutu were almost fully preserved, among other objects such as tools used for lighting and ornaments used to decorate mummification cloths.Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani says that the newly discovered burial site will shed light on the area of al-Dayabat, an area that is “not very known”, and will offer great propaganda for the area of Sohag.
