" New pharaonic tomb unearthed in Sharqia " (Egypt Independent, 25.07.2017)
Quote:
... East Delta ... city of al-Hosayneya in the al-Sharqia governorate ... the stone tomb was built over a mound of rocks, indicating that it was carved in a mountain elsewhere and then transferred during the pharaonic era to its current location ... a single 65-ton block of stone engraved with Hieroglyphic text, with a coffin inside it made from basalt or diorite.

Greetings, Lutz.
