I wanted to share this with you already long time ago but I couldn't find the article anymore (now I have it again):

Lost Outpost of Ancient Egypt (NG Vol.162, NO6 December 1982)

The article writes about a discovery in the Gaza strip at Deir el-Balah, where they found a sand dune containing 6 levels of occupation

Level1: Byzantine remains 4th - 7th century AD
Level2: Israelite campsite 10th - 9th century BC
Level3: Philistine settlement: 12th - 11th century BC
Level4: Egyptian Settlement: Late 13th century BC
Level5: Egyptian Stronghold: ealry 13th century BC
Level6: Egyptian town with foundations of a palace of the Amarna period: mid 14th century BC

Furthermore the pictures in the magazine show anthropoid sarcophagus essss (more than 1) and jewelery

if I find a link on the net I will surely post it again.

Annie started a topic on Egyptian art in Jerusalem some days ago.
This type of art surely relates to these art-blendings.

The excavations were from the early 80's already, right?
I wonder why Ahituv doesn't mention el-Balah - one of my favourite authors.
He's usually flawless in reporting about the Egyptian occupation in the Levant. Sad

I looked at the link that Bart gave.
Is that "thingy" on his forehead supposed to be a uraeus??
The top coffin looks like it's trying to mimic a royal coffin almost.

The one below that looks more like the mask they found in a Greek tomb.
(Mycenae burial mask from ca 1500 BC)
