Two Egyptian archeological pieces were found in the Egyptian Museum during an inventory check up of the Museum’ contents.

It was reported the two pieces were lost during the chaos on January 28, 2011, during the January 25 Revolution.

One of the pieces is a bed made of clay while the other is a wooden vase. Both pieces are dated back the Pharonic era, said a member of inventory committee, Raafat al-Nabarawy.

He said the workers found the pieces in storeroom IV of the Egyptian Museum. Consequently, all storerooms of the Egyptian Museum will be inventoried.

El-Nabarawy said the Museum employees did not find the pieces in their glass-case and so thought the pieces were lost. The lost pieces were registered in the list of lost monuments during the initial inventory.

By the time the committee finishes the inventory, a report will be submitted to the Public Prosecutor, Abdel Magid Mahmoud, who appointed the Committee to create an inventory of all pieces in the Egyptian Museum.
