During archaeological excavations, scientists unearthed the secret tomb of an ancient Egyptian general who led an army of foreign mercenaries.

Archaeologists were disappointed to find that the sarcophagus had been opened and the Wahbire-merry-Neith mummy had been seized.

Newsweek wrote about it (story was provided to Newsweek by Zenger News).

The Egyptian general Wahbire-merry-Neith was responsible for recruiting soldiers from Asia Minor and the Aegean islands. The burial dates back to the beginning of the 5th century BC and was excavated by the Czech Institute of Egyptology at Charles University in Prague.

Inside the tomb, a team of scientists discovered the largest embalming complex in Egypt, where there were 370 ceramic jugs with materials used to mummify the commander.

Wahibre-Mary-Knight was buried in a huge two-tiered square tomb. The main shaft is 6 m deep and measures approximately 14 m by 14 m across. The second shaft was dug lower and had a rectangular shape, with dimensions of 16.5 m by 3.3 m.

Let us remind you that an amateur archaeologist using a metal detector found a dagger belonging to an ancient Roman warrior in the south-east of Switzerland. Then professional archaeologists immediately discovered hundreds of artifacts in the region.
