Cairo, June 23 (ANI): A giant palace from the Roman ages (31-395 BC) has been discovered in Egypt, the Ministry of Antiquities has announced.


An US expedition unearthed the palace in the New Valley Governorate in Upper Egypt.


According to a statement by the ministry, the palace belongs to a person named Sornius, l-Masry Al-Youm reports.


The ministry said the palace cannot be opened to the public due to erosion, but it said a copy would be constructed for visitors.


It added that the US team was able to translate the inscriptions found in the palace, which helped elucidate ancient cultural and educational activities in the region.


The team's findings suggested that ancient Egyptian farmers might have worked in the region of the oases before coming to the Nile Valley. (ANI)
