Minister of Antiquities announced today the discovery of two 6th Dynasty (Old Kingdom) tombs at the site of Tabit El-Geish, south of
I get so excited when I see discoveries like this. I wish I had the ability to read the walls as if they were written in plain English, but
unfortunately will have to rely on the knowledge of others. Both tombs depict similar scenes and were found to have been cut directly into the white
The first tomb of a priest called "Ankhti" where the burial chambers was found in a shaft 12 meters deep and the second tomb belongs to a priest
called "Sabi" where the burial chamber was found in a shaft 6 meters deep. In both tombs there are offering scenes.
Both chambers contained skeletal and human remains of the tombs owners. The bones were discovered scattered which led archeologists to believe that
the tomb had been previously robbed during the 7th or 8th Dynasty.
Remind me to be buried in a welded titanium box so that I may be a benefit to science when they discover me after the next collapse of our
civilization. I freaking hate grave robbers with a passion!
Both tombs also contained scenes of offering lists
and depictions of "The
Seven Sacred Oils" which were used in the Opening of the Mouth
Above: An alabaster tablet for the seven sacred oils was discovered in the burial chamber of Ankh-haf at Giza.
There's not much more to the article, so I'll have to check around and see what else I can find. If you can dig up (pun!) anything extra or have any
knowledge related to the discovery, I hope you are willing to contribute. Thanks
