Voting begins on Egyptian Museum's September piece of the month
Antiquities lovers can cast their vote for which artefact they would like to see on display at the Egyptian Museum for September
The Egyptian Museum undersecretary for archaeological affairs, Sabah Abdel-Razek, said that the voting will be open for seven days and that voters will get to choose their favourite object from six artefacts carefully selected from the Egyptian Museum’s treasured collection.
"These objects will be put on display for the first time, as they had previously been in storage in the museum's basement," Abdel-Razek told Ahram Online.
Abdel-Razek said the artefacts include a Middle Kingdom royal head of a king wearing the crown, a stele engraved with the image of three persons raising their arms in the Oaranos fashion, and an anthropoid wooden sarcophagus lid.
