Egypt: 59 archaeological coffins announced in the Saqqara region

In a media conference, Egypt announced the discovery of 59 archaeological coffins in the Saqqara area in Giza, in addition to the discovery of a large number of small statues and amulets, ranging from 40 to 50 artifacts. This is in addition to a bronze statue in the form of the god Nefertum of a person called Badiamon, belonging to the dynasty 26.

This discovery is the largest archaeological discovery in 2020 in the Saqqara region and includes the largest number of coffins in one burial since the discovery of the coffins of the Asasif area in Luxor in October 2019.

The beginning was when the Egyptian archaeological mission operating in the region revealed a deep burial well with a depth of about 11 meters, and inside it found more than 13 human coffins closed more than 2,500 years ago. A week later, another 14 coffins were announced. Then, during the conference held on Saturday, 3 October 2020, it was announced that the number of coffins found reached 51.

These sarcophagi are still under study, although until now, they indicate they were of chief statesmen and priests during the Twenty-Sixth Dynasty.

The coffin is the most important component of the burial process because it is the shelter or place where the body of the deceased is placed.
