Massive 60 Tons(!) Sarcophagus Discovered at Abydos.

Really huge! Team of Pennsylvania archeologists discover an huge sarcophagus of 60 tons (!) in Abydos but wasn’t able to identify its owner. Maybe, but there isn't consensus among this, Sobekhotep I Pharaoh of the nebulous and dark 13th Dynasty. 

The tomb was built out of limestone from the Tura quarries near Cairo and was originally topped by a pyramid, now gone. The handful of other 13th Dynasty pharaonic tombs that have been discovered are in the royal necropoli of Dashur, 25 miles south of Cairo, and Saqqara, 19 miles south of Cairo. They too were topped by pyramids, only parts of which survive.

Only one question: How "Big" the Owner was?
