Russian archeologists have made a unique discovery they have found several mummies of the Greco-Roman period, which have no analogues in modern Egyptology, report head of the Egyptology Research Centre of Russian Academy of Sciences.
      
      Well-preserved mummies of this epoch are very rare.
      
      Russian archeological mission performs diggings in several regions of Egypt Memphis, Alexandria and in the south in Luxor suburbs. However, only one place appeared to be a real treasury for Russian scientists Al Fayoum oasis, a poorly studied place, located 100 km away from the capital of the country.

Researchers will perform thorough studies of mummies with X-rays and find out their exact age.
