The Ministry of State for Antiquities (MSA) has called on Alexandria governorate and all relevant authorities to stop immediately digging works in the vicinity of the Greco-Roman Museum. A collection of authentic pots have been uncovered during digging linked to an Alexandria governorate development project. The area is located midway between the museum and the governorate building.
MSA Minister Mohamed Ibrahim, in an attempt to protect the area from further interference, authorised the MSA inspectorate to file a police report in Alexandria to halt all digging works. An archaeological team is to be formed to inspect the area and recover all artefacts found.
