A team of Egyptian archeologists has rediscovered the ancient tomb belonging to Ptahmes, the mayor of Memphis, the ancient Egyptian capital.

Ptahmes lived around 1200 B.C. and served as royal scribe and arms chief under the Pharaoh Seti I and his son, one Egypt’s best known rulers, Rameses II.

The tomb is located near a pyramid in Saqqara ‘city of the dead,’ an ancient cemetery near Cairo.
