Two weeks ago, archaeologists working in the ancient city of Alexandria in northern Egypt, discovered a giant lack granite tomb measures nearly 10ft long.
On July 1, Egypt unearthed a 2,000-year-old sarcophagus in Alexandria, revealing that it is made of black granite of about 265 meters in length and 185 cm in height. After capturing the world's attention because of its unusually large size, observers believed it could contain the remains of a prominent figure, with some considering the possibility that it could contain the corpse of Alexander the Great.
Beyond the skeletons, the sarcophagus was inundated with sewage water, which accelerated the decomposition of the skeletons.
More specifically, archaeologists from Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities found three male skeletons in a reddish-brown slop.
The ministry said it was likely that sewage water had seeped through a fracture in the coffin. Analysis of the skeletal remains is ongoing, but initial results suggest that one of the individuals found in the sarcophagus suffered a blow from an arrow, the ministry said in the statement. No inscriptions or works of art have been found on the outside or inside of the sarcophagus so far.

A black granite sarcophagus that was discovered earlier this month in Alexandria has been opened in a ceremony attended by Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Waziri.
The sarcophagus was discovered by archaeologists from the Ministry of Antiquities who were inspecting an area of land in the Sidi Gaber district of Alexandria before construction took place.
The prospect of opening the long-sealed sarcophagus had stirred fears in Egyptian media that it could unleash a 1,000-year curse.
Here is a video footage showing a man pouring red-colored liquid found inside the tomb after taking samples to be analyzed by the archaeological team assigned to assigned to supervise the opening of the mysterious sarcophagus.
Mohamed Sultan, the governor of Alexandria, told Egypt Today that the remains will be moved to the Alexandria National Museum.
