An Egyptian archaeological mission from the Supreme Council of Antiquities uncovered the ancient tomb, which dates back to the Ptolemaic period.
The Egyptian ministry of antiquities has announced that an ancient sarcophagus in black granite, "the largest ever discovered in Alexandria", was unearthed during excavation work in the Sidi Gaber district.
The sarcophagus was found buried five metres below the surface, reports Fox News. Next to her, a glabrous head was found, which archaeologists consider to depict the owner of the tomb.
Head of the Projects Sector at the Ministry of Antiquities, Waad Abul-Ela, revealed the plan set to be used to lift the 30-ton archaeological sarcophagus to transfer it to one of Alexandria's archaeological sites.
According to the ministry, the sarcophagus, found at a depth of 5 m beneath the earth, features a layer of mortar between the lid and the body, thus indicating that it had not been opened since it was closed nearly 2000 years ago.

Trump's comments blaming immigration for crime in England were "preposterous", he added. Trump's intervention comes at the end of a tumultuous few days for May.
An alabaster head of a man was also found and most probably belongs to the owner of the tomb, according to the Ministry of Antiquities.
Additionally, experts in Australia found the tattered remains of an ancient priestess in a 2500-year-old Egyptian coffin that was long thought to be empty.
While the tomb likely belonged to a noble man, not a king, its discovery gave hope to experts who believe that the tomb of Alexander might one day be found in modern Alexandria, which is built on top of ancient city he founded.
The sarcophagus, whose age is estimated at 2000 years old, did not open the burial: it is covered with a pristine layer of a special solution. Experts are also confident that they have solved the longstanding mystery of the "screaming mummy".
