Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, described the find as "one of a kind in the last decades".

Al-Anani said that the discovered tomb was well-preserved and painted, with walls decorated with colorful scenes, showing royal priest "Wahtye" with his mother, wife and family as well as a number of sanctuaries with large colored statues of the priest and his family, Egyptian English-language monthly magazine Egypt Today reported.

The Saqqara necropolis south of Cairo is home to the famous Djoser pyramid, a more than 4 600-year-old construction which dominates the site and was Egypt's first stone monument. The drawings depicted the official and his family, he added.

The tomb also contains 45 statues carved into rock that are in near ideal condition.

The tomb contains 18 niches displaying 24 large coloured statues carved in rock. Again, they depict the official and his family.

More buried treasure is expected to be unearthed as the tomb is excavated further.

Market is wrong; fair value of Bitcoin much higher: Tom Lee
The price of Bitcoin declined further and broke the $3,200 price level; although the price is correcting itself. With many top 10 coins performing much worse than Bitcoin, BTC dominance is at a new high of 55.2%.

In recent years, Egypt has heavily promoted new archaeological finds to worldwide media and diplomats in the hope of attracting more tourists to the country.

The facade of the tomb was reached earlier in November, yet it was only uncovered after excavations continued and the debris from the tomb's facade was removed.

The country hopes the finds will brighten its image overseas and revive interest among travelers who once flocked to its iconic pharaonic temples and pyramids but who fled after the 2011 political uprising.
