              CAIRO, May 11 (Xinhua) -- An Egyptian archeological mission discovered 250 stone tombs that dated back to different periods in the Old Kingdom and the Ptolemaic dynasty, the country's Ministry of Antiquities and Tourism said on Tuesday.

              "The tombs were found in the mountain area eastern the Upper Egyptian province of Sohag," said Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA).

              He explained that the tombs of the Old Kingdom spanning from 2700-2200 BC are composed of an entrance leading to a well and a burial room.

              The SCA's chairman added that hieroglyphic symbols and photos of the dead people and persons who presented sacrifices were inscribed on the tombs.

              Several small yellow-painted potteries, mirrors, remains of human and animal bones, and limestones that carried ritual words were also found, he said.

              The discovery is part of a project that has documented so far 300 tombs in Sohag, he added. Enditem
