Cairo – Masaader News
Egypt has unveiled the 2500-year-old mummy of a high priest at an ancient cemetery at Minia.
Egyptologist Zahi Hawass and an Egyptian team opened three sealed sarcophagi from the 26th Dynasty.
One contained the well-preserved mummy of a powerful priest, wrapped in linen and decorated with a golden figure depicting Isis, an ancient Egyptian goddess.
At the burial site in Minya province, the team also found a rare wax head. “I never discovered in the late period anything like this,” Mr Hawass said.
