A rare and unique ancient Egyptian-style sarcophagus has been found by archeologists in the Jezreel Valley in Israel.

After working to uncover the find for three weeks, archeologists found that the ancient coffin featured a detailed carving of a face and a scarab ring inscribed with the name of an Egyptian pharaoh.

The skeleton inside is believed to belong to a local Canaanite official who once served the pharaoh after the ancient Egyptians conquered the area.

The gold encased scarab ring had the name of Pharaoh Seti I on it, implying that it may be from the 13th century BC.

Seti I was the father of Ramses II, who is often identified as the pharaoh that was drowned in the Red Sea during the era of the Prophet Moses.
