For 2,000 years the chest is untouched.
It is understandable that the discovery of this ancient coffin or sarcophagus triggered rumors in recent times.
Some think this coffin contains the body of Iskandar the Great, while others say lest this chest contains the curse of death.
Once opened and conducted research, it was not both.
The contents of these coffins are three skeletons and brownish gully water.
The ministry in charge of ancient Egyptian bundles specifically appoints a team assigned to open a coffin found in a construction site.
According to Egyptian media El-Watan, they initially opened this little chest, about five centimeters, but the team members faced the smell from inside a very stinging chest.
So sharp, the whole team left and moved away from the crate.
The second casket opening effort was aided by a team from the Egyptian military.
“All we get is the bones of three people, it’s like a family funeral … unfortunately the mummy in the crate is not in good shape, so what remains is bones,” Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of the council in charge of ancient items, said.
Waziri dismissed rumors that the chest contained the lethal curse of Pharaoh, as the crowd talked about.
“We have opened the casket and it turns out the world is not dark, I am the first person to see the contents of the sarcophagus and I can still stand before you … I’m fine,” Waziri said in response to media questions.
However, for a while this chest is quarantined to prevent the possibility of this casket issuing a deadly gas that killed Al-Ahram newspaper.
Experts say the bones in the coffin are likely to be soldiers living in Pharaonic times.
One of the skulls shows a scar exposed to an arrow.
Sarcophagus has a length of three meters with a height of nearly two meters. This is the largest sarcophagus found intact.
It weighs about 27 tons and is thought to have been from 323 BC or after the death of Iskandar Agung.
Archaeologists are now doing an in-depth study to determine exactly when the owner of this skeleton lived and how they died.
