Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities says that the discovery was made by an Egyptian-Czech mission in the village of Abusir southwest of Cairo. The excavation site is near the famous step pyramid of Saqqara.

I found the pyramid a Saqqara to be one of my favorite sites in Egypt. I hope this new find is as spectacular.

But is it really Rameses II? He had a great propensity for 'acquiring' others' monuments etc by erasing their cartouches and or having his own over carved (usually much deeper, so it lasted).
Still a very good find, however. I agree about Saqqara, we loved it too, when we were there pre troubles in 2005.
