From Raw Story

US archaeologists have uncovered the tomb in southern Egypt of a previously unknown pharaoh who ruled 3,700 years ago, antiquities officials said on Wednesday.

The discovery by a team from the University of Pennsylvania provides new evidence that at least part of Egypt may have escaped the rule of the Hyksos, invaders from what is now Syria who dominated the Nile Delta between the 18th and 15th centuries BC, the officials said.

A royal cartouche bearing the full name of pharaoh Senebkay was found on the sarcophagus and on a wall of the tomb unearthed in the ancient city of Abydos, the head of the antiquities ministry’s pharaonic department, Ali El-Asfar, said.

I know that there has been speculation that a dynasty based at Abydos may have set itself up after the Hyksos took over the north. I guess this would be confirmation of that theory.

I take the 3 posts from "missing tombs and kings" also in this thread (maybe Kevin can delete them there ?) :
Lutz wrote:
Matching the theme, Luxor-Times : "Abydos Dynasty tomb discovered revealing new Pharaoh’s name" reports today that "Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim announced the discovery of a new king's name that was previously unknown. The pharaoh is probably one of Abydos kings who ruled during the Second Intermediate Period ca. 1650 B.C when Egypt was divided. The discovery was made by University of Pennsylvania mission at the site south of Abydos, Sohag. The king's name is Seneb-Kay which appears for the first time inscribed in a royal cartouche."

The official Press Release of the Penn Museum Team. And some more press on NBC-News :
Quote:
"... We discovered an unknown king plus a lost dynasty," Wegner said. "It looks likely that all of the 16 kings are all buried there. ... We now have the tomb for first or second king of this [Abydos] dynasty. There should be a whole series of the others." (..)"

And some photos ... http://news.discovery.com/history/ancient-egypt/new-pharaoh-found-in-egypt-photos-140116.htm .

One picture of this area taken by me on 4th of March in 2005, from the top of the last known Royal Pyramid in Egypt (Abydos-South), build by Ahmose I for his cenotaph there (with small temple for Tetischerie) :


(View in direction Cenotaph Senwoseret III)

Wolfram Grajetzki suspects (on EEF, 15.01.2014) in an object from the Cairo Museum a piece that can be assigned to this king:

Magical Wand (1) & Magical Wand (2) (Cairo JE 34988 / CG 9433)

Wolfram proposes to read the name on it as a defective writing for Se(n)ebkay.

Greetings, Lutz.

A very interesting and worth reading article, I think:

Valley of the Other Kings - Lost Dynasty Found in Egypt (David Keys, The Independent, Thursday 16 January 2014)

The first picture shows in the upper left corner the remains of the pyramid of Ahmose I - the place were I made the picture in March 2005 which you can see in post "Fri Jan 17, 2014 5:22 pm".

Greetings, Lutz.
