Egypt has found a mysterious black sarcophagus


Archeologists have found a black granite sarcophagus at excavation in Alexandria on the northern coast of Egypt. Experts don't know yet whose remains can be in him. The Science Alert edition reports about it. According to scientists, this find — one of the largest found Egyptian sarcophagi. In height he reaches 185 centimeters, in width — 165 centimeters, and in length — 265 centimeters. By estimates, it has been sealed about two thousand years ago in the period of Ptolemaeus's dynasty (the IV—I century B.C.) and since then it wasn't opened what the untouched plaster coat under a cover testifies to. The intact and not touched by robbers Egyptian burials meet to researchers rather seldom. Archeologists have found the big head made of alabaster and, perhaps, representing the one who is buried in a sarcophagus however it still in the same burial it is necessary to confirm. Researchers consider that in a grave remains of the person of a high social status lie. In February it was reported that archeologists have found an untouched Ancient Egyptian necropolis which includes at least 8 tombs and 40 sarcophagi to the south from Cairo. In a crypt there were sacred objects and gemstones. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
