Ancient pottery vessels discovered in Edfu

Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty said on Sunday that ancient pottery vessels dating back to the Old and Late Kingdoms were discovered while digging to withdraw the subterranean water underneath the Edfu Temple.
He added that skeletons in burials and an ancient brass mirror dating back to the Old Kingdom were also discovered at the site.
Nasr Salam, responsible for the Aswan antiquities, said the vessels are made of pottery and alabaster. “We are taking them to museum storage,” he said.
