26th Dynasty Tombs Discovered at Al-Bahnasa

Archaeologists from the Spanish mission of Barcelona University have discovered two 26th Dynasty tombs at Al-Bahnasa in Middle Egypt. The first tomb contains the well preserved unidentified mummy of a scribe including an inkwell and pens but even more surprising is the presence of many mummified fishes in the tomb.

The second tomb contains a collection of stone sarcophagi, bronze Osiris statuettes, inscribed canopic jars and a collection of bronze coins.
