An archaeological mission has unearthed a block of stone in which two cartridges of King Nectanebo II in Abydos city of Sohag governorate were found, head of the archaeological department in Upper Egypt Hany Abu el-Azm said.

At a press conference, he added that the block of stone may be part of a royal cabin of King Nectanebo II or part of the wall of a temple built by the king. Excavation works will reveal the truth about the new discovery.

Nectanebo II was the third and last pharaoh of the 30th Dynasty of Egypt. (MENA)
