Nearly 100 coffins with some mummies inside and 40 gold-plated statues have been found in southern Cairo, Egypt, reports Daily Mail .



The coffin or Sarcophagi which was buried more than 2,500 years ago was exhibited in a temporary exhibition at the Step Pyramid of Djoser in Saqqara. 

Archaeologists have unearthed the coffin and found that there are mummies inside, they also performed X-rays that visualized the structure of ancient mummies showing how all the corpses were preserved.


Egypt’s Minister of Antiquities and Tourism, Khaled el-Anany, said the discoveries came from the Ptolemaic dynasty that ruled Egypt for about 300 years from 320 BC to 30 BC.
