Cairo, Feb 14 (EFE).- Spanish experts found a sarcophagus containing a 3,600-year-old mummy in the southern city of Luxor, Egypt's antiquities minister said.
The discovery was made on the west bank of the Nile and dates back to the 17th dynasty (around 1600 B.C.), which governed Upper (southern) Egypt from what is now Luxor, Mohamed Ibrahim said in a statement.
The discovery was made while excavating the front patio of the tomb of Yehuti, who was supervisor of the storehouses of Queen Hatshepsut, who reigned from 1502 to 1482 B.C.
