3000-Year-Old Pharaoh Ramses II Statue Discovered In a Slum
By | March 17, 2017
In Cairo, Egypt, the Archaeologists speculated that they have excavated some parts of a temple of Pharaoh Ramses II, along with an eight-metre-high statue.
Update: During a press conference last night, Egypt’s antiquities minister said that the statue is more likely to be a lesser famous ancient Egyptian ruler.
"We are not going to be categorical, but there is a strong possibility that it's of Psamtek I," antiquities minister Khaled el-Anani said to The Associated Press reporters before the Egyptian museum in Cairo.
Rameses II may be considered a bigger “celebrity” of the ancient world, still this find remains to be an important one.
