 Egypt said Monday that it had discovered the rest house of Thutmose II, the fourth Pharaoh of Egypt's 18th Dynasty, in the country's northeast.

Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damati said the structure had been discovered in Egypt's northeastern Ismailia province.

Two other rest houses had been discovered in the same area, he added, which had belonged to Menmaatre Seti I and Ramses II, two 19th Dynasty pharaohs.

Thutmose II – who was reportedly influenced by his wife, Hatshepsut – built a number of minor monuments during his reign.

According to al-Damati, several pots bearing the king's seal were unearthed inside the rest house.
