4,400-yr-old murals unveiled in newly discovered Egyptian tomb
SAQQARA, Egypt -- A tomb dating back some 4,400 years has been found here in Egypt, along with colorful, well-persevered murals depicting scenes including a cow being butchered.
The tomb, said to be that of a noble named Khuwy, was discovered in March near the Pyramid of Djedkare Isesi, a pharaoh who ruled Egypt around the 25th to 24th century B.C. Going down a narrow passage in the underground tomb, murals in red, white, yellow and other vibrant colors can be seen covering the stone walls.
According to Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities, it is rare to find ancient artwork in such good condition. In a news conference at the site, Minister Khaled el-Enany said that new discoveries are continuing in Saqqara, and that he hoped to see more excavation.
Saqqara, located south of the capital Cairo, is known as an ancient burial site, and many artifacts including mummies have been found there.
