The further excavation works at the Dakahliya mastaba, the find of which was reported last week, has revealed yet another surprise: a mummy in a coffin bearing the name of 26th Dynasty king Psamtek I.
If the inscription indeed refers to the king as the owner of the coffin and not to a private person whose name contained the name of the king, this would be a unique find of a Late Dynastic king.
