More on Remains of ancient pyramid found in Egypt


Preliminary studies on hieroglyphs found in newly discovered pyramid ruins in the Dahshur necropolis have revealed a cartouche of the 13th Dynasty pharaoh Ameny Qemau (also spelled Qemaw), Adel Okasha, director-general of the Dahshur necropolis, told Ahram Online.

Okasha said that offering texts are engraved on the ruins, as well as a female name of the pharaoh's family.

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.

Okasha says that the structure is composed of a corridor leading to the inside of the pyramid, a hall leading to a southern ramp, and a room at the western end.

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.
