From speculation about the tomb of Alexander the Great, and doomsday prophecies, to more unappetizing proposals ... Broad was the echo in the media to a find, early last month in Alexandria:

In mandatory subsoil investigations, a sealed black granite sarcophagus of considerable size was discovered in a 5 m deep shaft in Al Karmeli Street in the district of Sidi Gaber (northeast of the port). (Chris Naunton, I think, offers a readable and very informative classification of the find in his blog).

Now, the Ministry of Antiquities has published first (preliminary) results on the investigations of its contents:

"Initial Analysis Shows Skeletons From Huge Egyptian Sarcophagus Are Two Men, One Woman" (Ahram Online - Nevine El-Aref, 19.08.2018)

"That Massive Black Sarcophagus Contained 3 Inscriptions - Here's What They Mean" (Live Science - Owen Jarus, 20.08.2018).

Greetings, Lutz.
