Egypt's Antiquities Minister, Mohammed Ibrahim, said that the mummy preserved wooden sarcophagus dates back to 1600 BC and it appears to belong to a high official, as it is engraved with hieroglyphs and decorated with inscriptions of bird feathers, the Independent reported.

He said that the exact identity of the well-preserved mummy, which was discovered by a Spanish mission in collaboration with the Egyptian antiquities ministry, will now be studied.

Antiquities department head Ali Al-Asfar said the two-meter sarcophagus still bears original coloring and writings.
