During a sewage digging operation in the Kom al-Arous village in northern Beni Suef, a worker discovered a stone box and the face of a lion statue believed to be from Egypt's Pharaonic era.
Head of Security in Beni Suef Gerir Mustafa received a notice from a police officer at the al-Wasati police station informing him of the 58-year old worker's find.
After inspecting the area, police found a two-meter deep hole in the middle of the house, where the discovered artifacts lay.
After the police searched the scene, Beni Suef'a attorney general Emad Ali ordered a team from the antiquities and criminal investigations departments to be dispatched to the site to further investigate the findings.
