Long lost for 2,200 years, an Egyptian temple was finally found.

Archaeologists discovered a tomb believed to belong to Pharaoh Ptolemy IV.

According to CNN, construction workers were drilling a sewage drain in a village in Sohag, Egypt, when they accidentally stumbled upon the temple.

After drilling work was suspended, archaeologists found a north-south wall, an east-west wall, and the southwestern corner of the limestone structure. At this point, they are trying to carefully preserve what is left.

It is believed that Ptolemy IV ruled Egypt from about 221 B.C. to 204 B.C. Historians believe he built the largest human-powered ship ever made. Named the Tessarakonteres, meaning “forty,” the galley had 40 banks of oars run by 4,000 oarsmen.
