An ancient Egyptian sarcophagus that was pretty much intact was discovered in Israeli territory. It was identified as belonging to a government official in the service of the Pharaoh Seti I.


A very old Egyptian coffin with a skeleton inside it was found in Israel. While work was being done on the installation of a gas pipe, the sarcophagus was unearthed. The site was the Jezreel Valley in the upper region of Israel. 

Over 3300 years old, the discovery had various odds and ends of equipment surrounding it. These included pottery forms for eatables, table vessels and skeletons of animals. The cenotaph featured a man with his hair in Pharaoh-like fashion, with the arms folded in pretzel-like manner across the chest. 

“We discovered a unique and rare find: a cylindrical clay coffin with an anthropoidal lid surrounded by a variety of pottery, consisting mainly of storage vessels for food, tableware, cult vessels and animal bones,” according to a statement by the antiquities authority.

Among the belongings of the man were: a metallic knife, a small vessel to drink liquid from, shards of pottery and bronze pieces with indentations in them. It is supposed after careful inquiry of the facts that the individual unearthed was a Canaanite who served as a government official. 

“Since the vessels interred with the individual were produced locally, we assume the deceased was an official of Canaanite origin who was engaged in the service of the Egyptian government,” the researchers said. “Another possibility is that the coffin belonged to a wealthy individual who imitated the Egyptian funerary customs.”

A scarab beetle seal attached to a gold ring was also found among the personal belongings of the man. The symbols inscribed on this ring are proof that it was the reign of the Pharaoh Seti I during which this denizen lived. Seti I was the father of Ramses II

All evidence pointed to a time when Egyptian influence was very prominent in Israel. The DNA of the skeleton was collected for further tests so as to prove its authenticity. When more proof comes in, a link may be established between the remains and the Jewish Exodus from Ancient Egypt as recounted in the Old Testament. 

 

The discovery of this cylindrical sarcophagus has added to the annals of archaeological and historical knowledge that mankind possesses. It will go on to increase our understanding of the Zeitgeist that was the Ancient World. 

Especially the way of life in Egyptian Civilization and the Hebrew breaking away from the yoke of slavery under the Pharaohs will become more clearer thanks to this find.
