Egyptian archeologists discovered an old kingdom tomb of 5th Dynasty top official, Hetpet, as part of an Egyptian archaeological mission led by Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Wazir.
The tomb is thought to belong to a priestess known as Hetpet, who was apparenlty close to ancient Egyptian royals of the 5th Dynasty.
The tomb has distinguished and well-preserved wall paintings depicting Hetpet standing in different hunting and fishing scenes and also sitting before a large table receiving offerings from her children.
The paintings also show two scenes featuring monkeys, popular pets at the time, one reaping fruit and another dancing before an orchestra, Al-Waziri said.
Al-Waziri believes Hetpet had another tomb in Giza's western necropolis and said that excavation work is underway to find that one too. The famous Egyptian archeologist Zahi Hawass has previously discovered a group of ancient Egyptian tombs in this area.
Although this is not the first discovery of its kind in Egypt, the archaeological team stressed the importance of it given the peculiarity of a non-noble woman being buried alone.
He said: 'This is a very promising area.
"We have removed between 250-300 cubic meters of layers of earth to find the tomb".
'What we see above the earth's surface in Egypt doesn't exceed 40 percent of what the core holds'.
Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Enany told reporters the new tomb includes "a purification basin on which are engraved the name of the tomb's owner and her titles".
Al-Waziri believes there are other ancient artifacts waiting to be uncovered near the site.
Minister Anani said he was hopeful of further discoveries at the site, which is located about 20km (12 miles) south of Cairo. The finding marks the first discovery to be announced in 2018, Ahram Online, an Egyptian news organization, reports.
