Dressed in Roman robes, a 2,000-year-old coffin stares back from a rare Egyptian grave in the Bahariya Oasis. Found in 2010, the carved plaster sarcophagus is only 3 feet long and shows a woman wearing a long tunic, a headscarf, bracelet and shoes, as well as a beaded necklace.
The archeological team first thought they had stumbled across a child’s tomb because of its diminutive stature, but the decorations and features indicated it was a woman. It was still unclear who the woman was but said it was most likely she was a wealthy and influential member of her society, judging by the effort taken on the sarcophagus. (Source)
