Egypt discovers tomb chamber belonging to pharaoh’s daughter

Egypt: a burial chamber belonging to the daughter of a pharaoh has been discovered

Inside the chamber, researchers found wooden boxes with Hatshepset’s name engraved on them. Researchers say the find probably does not refer to Pharaoh Hatshepsut, but to someone else with a similar name. Egyptians used to keep the so-called “robots” in such wooden boxes. canopy – ritual vessels, in whichór which the entrails removed from the body before mummification were placed. However, no such vessels have been found.

In early April, Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities announced and the unearthing of the remains of a previously unknown pyramid. The pyramid was probably built around 3,700 years ago and was found near the Broken Pyramid of Snofru.

A pyramid from the 13th Dynasty period was found in króLevi’s necropolis of Dahshur, 30 kilometersóin the south of the Egyptian capital – Cairo. CEO of the necropolis in Dahshur – Adel Okasha admitted that an alabaster block was unearthed, on which heórym is carved with 10 vertical lines with hieroglyphs. The inscriptions included the name of Pharaoh Ameni Kemau (there is also a spelling Emenikamaw or Ameny Qemau), whoóry ruled Egypt for krótki period around 1790.p.n.e.

In Dahshur, another pyramid was discovered in 1957, in whichórej also found inscriptions with the names of this ruler. Egyptologists are now wondering why one pharaoh had two pyramids.

Three lines of hieroglyphs are engraved on wooden boxes found inside the chamberów. Journalists from the Livescience website sent them to Egyptologist James Allen, a professor at Brown University. Allen said the hieroglyphics on the chests are typical of Canopian urns.

"Neit, extend arms over Duamutef, whoóry is in you" – this is the górna line of hieroglyphsóin Allen’s translation. Neit is an Egyptian goddess whoóra looked after the canopies. Duamutef, on the other hand, is bóg egyptian. A Canopian vessel with Duamutef protected the stomach of a deceased.

Further inscriptions refer to the aforementioned bóstw and are asking for prosperity for the „córki króla Hatshepset” – explains Allen. – I assume that Hatshepset was córk of Ameni Kemau and was buried in her father’s pyramid – assessed the Egyptologist.

Egyptologists claim that Ameni Kemau móhead to take over a pyramid built for another pharaoh to bury c in itórka. Inside the tomb chamber, archaeologists also found the remains of a richly decorated sarcophagus. However, the excavation is in its early stages and is expected to wkrótce more information on the subject.
