Aswan Prosecution investigates the discovery of an ancient mummy thrown in the street

The Aswan Public Prosecution began its investigations into finding an archaeological mummy, near the veterinary slides at the end of Airport Street in the city of Aswan.

The prosecution summoned antiquities officials to question them about the incident, determine the mummy’s time period, and clarify its archaeological value.

Security forces found the mummy near the veterinary railway crossing on Samad Street in eastern Aswan City.

The prosecution’s investigations, based on the testimony of inspectors and antiquities officials regarding the archaeological value of the mummy, confirmed that the mummy is in a state of disrepair and incomplete. It was also found that the head is separated from the body and that it is wrapped in linen bandages.

Additionally, the artifact is also likely that it is from the Late Period, one of the eras of ancient Egyptian history. It is considered to be from the human lineages belonging to ancient Egyptian civilization.

The artifact is subject to the Antiquities Protection Law No. 49 of 2016 and Decision No. 117 of 1983 and its amendments. Thus, the prosecution decided to hand it over to the museum store affiliated with the Aswan and Nubia Antiquities Zone.
