Rare XVII Dynasty Coffin Found

The fine folks working at the tomb of Djehuty in the Theban necropolis of Dra Abu El Naga have found a well preserved rishi coffin from about 1600 BC, containing a well preserved mummy in the courtyard of Djehuty's tomb. The find by the Spanish mission, directed by Dr. Jose M. Galan is only the most recent discovery and should prove to be a noble of the era.
