The Archaeological Mission Canaria-Tuscany, in cooperation with the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, has discovered, in the Necropolis of the Nobles in Luxor, a replica of the tomb dedicated to the god Osiris.
This funerary complex was discovered by the Spanish-Italian mission in the archaeological location marked as number 327 in the area of Sheikh Abd el-Gourna. According to researchers it is a small replica of the design of the “Osireion” built under the command of Egyptian pharaoh Seti I in the city Abydos, Luxor (southern Egypt). On the north wall of this complex an entrance was discovered that leads to stairs to the funerary complex dedicated to one of the most important Ancient Egyptian deities Osiris.

There is also at Saïs the burial-place of one whose name I think it impious to mention in speaking of such a matter; it is in the temple of Athena, behind and close to the length of the wall of the shrine.  Moreover, great stone obelisks stand in the precinct; and there is a lake nearby, adorned with a stone margin and made in a complete circle; it is, as it seemed to me, the size of the lake at Delos which they call the Round Pond.
