The Egyptian archaeological mission in Kom Ombo, Aswan, has unearthed in the temple of Kom Ombo the upper part of a limestone slab dating back to the Era of Liberation of Kom Ombo.

 

Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Waziri said in a statement Thursday the slab holds the photos of two persons while presenting sacrifices to Queen Tetisheri and Queen Ahmose-Nefertari.

 

He stressed the importance of the find which is reminiscent of the activities of ancient Egyptians in South Egypt to expel the Hyksos from Egypt.

 

Tetisheri was the mother of Seqenenre Tao, Queen Ahhotep I and possibly Kamose.

 

Tetisheri was the daughter of Tjenna and Neferu. She was selected by Senakhtenre, despite her non-royal birth, to be not only his wife but his Great Royal Wife.
