18th Dynasty Tomb of Ancient God Amun’s Gate Discovered In Luxor

The 18th dynasty tomb of the Ancient Egyptian deity Amun’s Gate has been discovered in Gorna, Luxor.

According to the Ministry of Antiquities, the tomb, which appears well preserved and dates back more than 3,000 years, may potentially lead to a burial chamber.

Discovered by an archaeological mission of the American Research Center, the tomb depicts its owner and his wife at a sacrificial table, hunting scenes and more.

Despite the well preserved nature of its wall art, the Antiquities Ministry says it appears the tomb had deteriorated over the years due to looting and change in environmental conditions.

Nevertheless, the Ministry added that the tomb will be restored and may be open to the public in the future.
