The sarcophagus, which is a tomb that is sometimes buried, was discovered July 1 during routine excavation work for the construction of a new building in Alexandria'sSidi Gaber district, according to the Ministry of Antiquities.
The Egyptian antiquities ministry said the sarcophagus had remained sealed for more than 2,000 years, with an undisturbed layer of mortar between the lid and the body of the massive stone coffin. General secretary of the Supreme Council of AntiquitiesDr Mostafa Waziri said that the sarcophagus measures a hefty 2.6 metres in length, and is believed to be the largest ever found in Alexandria.
For thousands of years, similar Egyptian tombs have been plundered by grave robbers, so when archeologists have made similar discoveries in the past, sarcophagi have often been found ripped open.

Inside the tomb, they also found a disembodied alabaster head with its features completely eroded off, which likely belonged to the person in the tomb and is also creepy as hell.
The nearly three-metre long by two-metre high sarcophagus was discovered in a long-concealed tomb below the earth during a survey of a plot of land for a building construction.
Archaeologists are yet to open the coffin to see what's inside, but it is assumed the alabaster head could represent the owner of the tomb which dates back to between 305 and 30 BCE.
The city of Alexandria had been mostly forgotten by researchers and archeologists, according to the Smithsonian. Even though the famous city has an important place in history, centuries of building has covered over numerous ruins and millions of people now live and work on top of what was once founded by Alexander the Great.
