An antiquities investigation, in cooperation with antiquities inspectors in Behira, found two pharaonic coffins and other artifacts belonging to the Pharaonic era in the city of Delengat.
A stone piece of a sarcophagus cover was discovered on a lot owned by local residents, and was believed to be ancient. When examined, it appeared to be a 234-cm long, 100-cm wide sarcophagus cover, made from limestone without drawings, and suffering from cracks.
A committee of Behira antiquities inspectors said that the land plot is part of Kom al-Kharaz ancient area, and the sarcophagus cover belongs to the Pharaonic late era.
The area was further examined to find a limestone cemetery, and another sarcophagus, as well as other artifacts.
