Mummy of Queen Sesheshet found?

The remains of the mummy were discovered in a pyramid found in Saqqara last year. Ancient robbers had stolen most of the valuables from inside the sarcophagus, leaving behind the body parts, some pottery and gold that was used to cover fingers of royal pharaohs, the council said in a faxed statement. Even though the archaeologists didn’t find the name of the queen in hieroglyphics, there is evidence to suggest that the mummy was the mother of the Sixth Dynasty ruler King Teti, Hawass said in the statement.
