A previously unknown Egyptian tomb was recently discovered in Luxor. Excavators who were cleaning the area around the tomb of Userhat, an official under Amenhotep III, stumbled upon a hole that led to the tomb of a royal scribe named Khonsu. The newly discovered tomb is decorated with paintings and frieze patterns depicting various Egyptian gods, including Ra-Atum, Osiris, and Isis. A hieroglyphic inscription describes Khonsu as a 'true renowned scribe.' The tomb has been preliminarily dated to the Ramesside period based on its style. According to biblical chronology, this would correspond to the time of the judges in the Old Testament.
