American archaeologists have unearthed a pharaonic tomb from the 18th dynasty in Egypt's famed temple city of Luxor, officials said on Tuesday.
The tomb, found at Al-Qurna archaeological site in Luxor, dates to the period of the New Kingdom (1550-1070 BC) and its walls show scenes of celebrations and daily life at that time, the antiquities ministry said.
The scenes "are records of daily life practices that prevailed in that era," Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty said in a statement.
Damaty said there were signs that the tomb had been looted as some scenes and inscriptions on its walls were erased.
Last week a similar tomb was discovered at Al-Qurna.
Luxor, a city of some 500,000 people on the banks of the Nile in southern Egypt, is an open-air museum of intricate temples and pharaonic tombs.
