The discovery, which belongs to the 17th dynasty, dates back nearly 3,600 years.
“The coffin along with several funerary furniture were found near a mud-brick compartment in upper Egypt’s monument-rich city of Luxor,” said Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.
He highlighted that the 1.75 meter-long coffin is made of a single piece of sycamore tree and painted with a white grout.
Inside the coffin, decorated in red, a nearly 16-year-old girl was laid on her left side in poor condition of preservation, Waziri said.
The mission also found four necklaces, ranged from 62-74 cm long on the mummy’s chest. They are made of green and glass beads, some in the form of the God of Horus.
On the other side of the sarcophagus, a small coffin made of mud was unveiled. It contained four wooden statues wrapped in linen sheets and engraved with name of Osiris, he added.
The mission also discovered a burial with a pair of red-leather shoes, leather balls tied together with strings, a pair of cats, and roses in good conditions, Waziri said, adding that “all these findings belong to a woman who was practicing some sports or dancing.
