A team of archaeologists from Cairo University unearthed the tomb of an important official who served in the courts of Pharaoh Rameses II (ca. 1279 to 1212 BC). The tomb was discovered at the Saqqara necropolis, which served as the burial ground for the Egyptian capital city of Memphis. The tomb is located in an area where the tombs of other New Kingdom officials were previously found. Carved scenes and wall paintings depict the life of Ptah-M-Wia, who is described as the head of the treasury, royal scribe, supervisor of cattle, and one who oversaw sacrifices at the temple of Rameses II in Thebes. Archaeologists also discovered columns with reliefs of Osiris, the god of death and resurrection within the tomb. According to a straightforward reading of the Bible’s chronology, Rameses II was the Pharaoh of Egypt during the period of the Judges.
