This is very interesting to me. Ramse II was probably the most noteable Pharoah that ruled over Egypt.

I would like to find out if anything else was unearthed with the statues. He was the Pharoah that was mentioned in the bible in the story of Moses. I hope more antiquities are unearthed! This is amazing that such great finds are still being recovered. Anyone have any other info? AAC

The only additional detail I found is it was found under a flea market.

Thanks Mak, I would think this would be bigger news. I wonder if any other artifacts were found. (Half-seriously) Perhaps some lost scrolls of the Bible?

I would be curious to see if any scrolls or parchments will be found to confirm or deny biblical accounts of that time.

As I recall, no Pharoah's name was actually mentioned in the Exodus story. It's speculation to assert that Ramses II was the Biblical Pharoah, though he could have been, and he might as well have been, since iot makes little difference to the storyline.

What a fun story! Found under the flea market! Cairo is a city that's both ancient and modern and there's layers and layers under most of the buildings in the older areas. Ramses II is a favorite pharoah of mine.

Probably none. We already have good detail of his life, and there's really not much of a match there with any bible stories (it was earlier thought that he was a good match, but later findings have discounted this.)
