It is located in Bahariya Oasis, about 380 km west of the pyramids.
Who built it
It was built during the Greco - Roman period , exhibits a variety of styles and a range of social status.
It was discovered on 17 of April 2001. Four tombs were excavated, and found inside them were 105 mummies, of high-ranking Roman Egyptians, many wearing gold masks. These mummies, many sumptuously decorated with religious scenes, represent the very best of Roman-Period mummies ever found in Egypt. These ancient remains are around 2000 years old, but they have withstood the test of time remarkably well.
This excavation gave us more information about life and death of the Egyptians who lived in Bahariya during the Greco-Roman Period since 332B.C. The people became rich through the exportation of wine to the Nile Valley since pharaonic times.
