The Touna el-Gabal site existed during the Greco-Roman period, which prevailed between third century NC and third century AD. These discoveries, such as the mummies found, are not only a benefit to Egypt's economy, but they are also an important insight into what life was like back when those people lived.

However, in 2011, there was an uprising that caused the country to fall into years of unrest, and the tourists stopped coming out of fear for their own safety.

It could herald even more discoveries in the area, he said.

The discovery adds to a spate of recent finds at sites across Egypt.
