Okasha said that excavation work is ongoing to reveal more of the pyramid's secrets.
Earlier this week, an Egyptian mission from the Ministry of Antiquities uncovered remains of the pyramid.

An alabaster block measuring 15cm by 17cm has been found in the corridor, engraved with 10 vertical hieroglyphic lines that are still being studied.
A granite lintel and a collection of stone blocks showing the interior design of the pyramid have also been uncovered.
