Tomb of Pharaonic royal scribe discovered in Abusir northern Egypt

The tomb of a royal Pharaonic scribe Djehuti-imhat dating back to the first millennium B.C was unearthed in Abusir between Giza and Ṣaqqarah, northern Egypt.

Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Moustafa Waziri stressed on the importance of the discovery of the tomb of Djehuti-imhat who lived during the twenty Seventh Dynasty and his burial chamber contained a multitude of scenes and hieroglyphics, highlighting the fact that Djehuti-imhat’s identity was unknown until then.

The tomb is shaped in the form of a well ending in a burial room.

In the area of the necropolis where the scientists made the discovery, burials of high officials and military leaders from the XXIX and XXII dynasties had already been found.
