Archaeologists Found A Massive Black Coffin In Egypt, And The Internet Is Suggesting Not To Open It
What comes to your mind when thinking about Egypt? The pyramids? Mummies? A black granite sarcophagus measuring 72.8 inches by 104.3 inches by 65 inches in size? If you answered yes to the latter, then you just guessed exactly what archeologists recently dug up in the Sidi Gaber district of Alexandria.
The tomb was found 16 feet underground and has remained sealed for around 2,000 years. An alabaster bust was also found near the sarcophagus and probably is of the man buried inside. The identity of the man inside the tomb is unknown, and we hope the archeologists don’t release an ancient curse upon opening it because we haven’t seen Brendan Fraser in a while.
See the pictures of the mysterious sarcophagus in the gallery below!
