Egypt: Unveiling a collection of Roman vessels and saucers in Ismailia


Egypt: The Italian Egyptian archaeological mission jointly between the Supreme Council of Archeology and the National Council for Italian Research – the Institute of Ancient Studies in the Mediterranean (CNR) – located at the site of Tel-Maskhouta in the province of Ismailia, has succeeded in uncovering a large collection of vessels and emblems dating back to the late and Greek-Roman centuries.

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of Egypt said that the discovery was confirmed by the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Archeology, Mustafa Waziri, on the importance of this discovery, as he uncovers a number of important pieces of information pointing to the significance of this area in the past as a commercial headquarters.


He added that the area was a hub for international trade as well as communications during the Roman Era when Egypt was a hub for International trade, thanks to the important infrastructure at the time of the channel that connected the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, known as the Sizostris Canal.

Mission chief Dr Andrea Angelina explained that the mission also succeeded in detecting a huge ramp rising to the top of the huge fence discovered during excavation work in 2017, representing the northern side of the Great City Wall. The slope greatly contributed to the protection of one of the war fortresses located in the east. So did the corridor that was used to collect fees and customs on the way of trade, securing commercial caravans and repelling any aggression coming from the East.

Notably, Egypt has a number of the best museums in Africa and boasts many fascinating monuments which are dating back to the oldest civilizations in history, as per a recent report. The report also added that the archaeologists in Egypt are working hard to unveil new discoveries in the country.
