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.

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.
