The world has been transfixed by the unopened 2,000-year-old sarcophagus since it was discovered in Alexandria several weeks ago, with some internet users warning Egypt not to open it for fear of unleashing an ancient curse. Waziri's point was another shot at internet sleuths who believed that Alexander the Great might have been buried in the box.
According to experts who have now unsealed it, it's a no to both.
Waziry, accompanied by a team of specialists in mummification and restoration, instead found three mummies and a red liquid he identified as sewage water, believed to have entered the sarcophagus through a crack on its right side, causing the decomposition of the mummies.
Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities had appointed a committee of archaeologists to open the relic, which was unearthed at a construction site. They later prised it open with help from Egyptian military engineers.
"The sarcophagus has been opened, but we have not been hit by a curse", Waziri declared, directly addressing internet memes that suggested that the mysterious black box was filled with a Hollywood-style calamity.
"I was the first to put my whole head inside the sarcophagus. and here I stand before you".
"People are saying it might contain Alexander or Cleopatra or Ramses".
Experts have said the three individuals in the tomb may have been soldiers in the time of the Pharaohs. "This should go well", said one Twitter ever.
Also found inside the 50-tonne coffin was a significant amount of sewage which had leaked its way inside over two millennia. It is three metres long and almost two metres high.
The tomb is believed to be from the early Ptolemaic period, between 305 BC to 30 BC - after the death of Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great in 323 BC.
Archaeologists will now study the tomb in depth to pinpoint when its occupants lived, and how they died.
