Fifty mummies older than 2000 years were discovered by Egyptian archeologists in a tomb in Miny, south of Cairo.
Out of the 50 mummies, 12 are the corpses of children and they were discovered inside a catacomb at a depth of 4-5 meters.
Their identities are not known at the moment but most likely they had significant roles in the community.
“We haven’t found hieroglyphs of their names” Mostafa Waziri said, who is the General Secretary of the Supreme Antiques Council.
Many visitors, but also ambassadors from other countries arrived on site, where 40 of the discovered mummies were put on display.
