MessageToEagle.com - The necropolis of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna - known as the Tombs of the Nobles - located on the West Bank at Thebes, Egypt, with over 150 tombs, is the largest of the Theban Necropolis.

Sheikh Abd el-Qurna is the famous burial site of the kings, queens and nobles of Pharonic Egypt.

The tombs of the Theban Necropolis are dating back, mainly, to the New Kingdom. And now it's time for yet another discovery.

"A Spanish-Italian team carrying out routine excavation work on Luxor's west bank has stumbled upon what is believed to be the tomb of Maayi, a top governmental official in the 18th dynasty," reports AhramOnline.

Egypt's antiquities minister Mohamed Ibrahim told Ahram Online that the tomb was accidentally found by the excavation team via a hole in the wall of tomb number TT109, in the Sheikh Abdel-Gournah area.

Paintings on the tomb's walls show Maayi in different positions with family members, offering details on his daily life and family relations.

"The tomb is very well decorated, which reflects the luxurious life of its owner," Ibrahim said, adding that one wall painting depicts a feast with men and women gathered in front of a table filled with a variety of food.

Ibrahim said that the tomb is only partly discovered due to debris blocking the entrance. Excavation work is moving ahead to remove sand and rubble so that the rest of the tomb can be explored."
