On the Egyptian mummy have found the hidden letters


On splinters of a sarcophagus of the Ancient Egyptian mummy which is stored in the museum of Stanford University the text fragments which are earlier not noticed by scientists have been found. Researchers could decipher a name of the woman who possessed remains and also a part of an inscription which was an epitaph. It is reported in the press release on Phys.org. The age of a mummy reaches about two thousand years. She treats Greek-Roman, or Hellenistic period of existence of Egypt (between the 100th year B.C. and 100th year of our era). In 1901 remains were got by the wife of Leland Stanford, the magnate and the founder of Stanford University. In 1906 the sarcophagus made of cardboard articles — fragile material in the form of the layers of a flax or papyrus covered with plaster — has been strongly damaged as a result of an earthquake. In the spring of 2018 fragments of a mummy were studied by students within a course about museum culture. On two splinters inscriptions which have been translated subsequently by Egyptologists and specialists in the Ancient Egyptian letter have been revealed. It has turned out that the died woman was called by Senchalantos, and a part of the text said "Let her name looks younger every day". The style of the letter has allowed experts to specify date of death of the Egyptian — not earlier than the 30th year B.C. Archeologists find the texts which have remained since then seldom.
