The treasures were found after a group of thieves tried to steal them.

The other articrafts also include two stone pieces with Pharaonic inscriptions, also dating back to the same period, in addition to some wooden vessels.

The prosecution ordered that the findings be handed to Aswan antiquities department and to prepare a report about their archaeological value.

Authorities are in search for the thieves who attempted to steal the articrafts.
