The Dutch Expedition working at the site of the New Kingdom at Saqqara found a new tomb.
The tomb belonged to a man named Mryneit and held such titles as:
The tomb was found full of decorated scenes show the Amarna style and they also found a pair of seated statues of the deceased and his wife.
The discovery of this tomb proved that there was a temple of Aton at Saqqara. This will change what Egyptologists believe that the god Aton, the "one god", was not worshipped at Amarna only.
