In Saqqara, they discovered a 3,200-year-old tomb complex that belonged to Panehsy, a temple steward who lived during the heyday of Pharaoh Ramses II. The freestanding temple, colonnaded courtyard, underground burial chambers, and three chapels inside the complex are testaments to the splendor of the time. Intriguing artifacts were found by archaeologists, including pictures of Panehsy and his wife Baia taking part in religious rituals. An intricate stone relief depicting the deceased couple seated next to a priest named Piay, who was identified by hieroglyphic text, is one of the tomb's most amazing finds. Archaeologists believe that Piay, who is depicted as a priest in a complex stone carving discovered in the tomb complex, served as Panehsy's underling and was in charge of the administration of his funeral and death cult.

New information about Saqqara Necropolis' growth during the Ramesside era is revealed by the excavation. The epidemic caused the 2019 discovery of the tomb complex to be postponed. The team did, however, pick up where they left off in September 2022, with the most recent work taking place in February and March of this year.

Lara Weiss shared her excitement about the find and how it might advance our knowledge of ancient Egyptian culture. She stated that every new find at the location adds to our understanding of the customs and culture of the nearby ancient Egyptians.
