“At the Roman necropolis in Al-Qantara East the Egyptian mission of the Ministry of State of Antiquities (MSA) uncovered two Ptolemaic tombs that can be dated to the first century AD.
MSA Minister Mohamed Ibrahim told Ahram Online that the first tomb belongs to a priest called Mina from a Roman area named Sila.
The tomb is 6.5 meters high and 2.5 meters long. It is built of mud brick and has a vaulted ceiling and a burial shaft. One of the tomb’s walls is decorated with coloured paintings depicting Mina in front of the goddess Isis.
The second tomb, according to Ibrahim, is built of limestone but still not yet identified. It contains a collection of Ptolemaic clay pots and pans” – via Ahram Online.
