Here’s how the story goes:

In October 2012, an unidentified source from the Egyptian Antiquities Department leaked this photo to Facebook. Accompanying the photo was this description “

“The body of a perfectly preserved, carefully mummified an alien was found buried in an ancient pyramid. A mysterious creature from between 150 and 160 centimeters was found by an archaeologist near Lahun when exploring a small pyramid near the Dynasty doceaba of Senusret II. However, this fact was not revealed immediately.”

“The mummy of what appears to be an alien, dates back more than 2,000 years and it seems it would be a humanoid” said a source at the , who provided details and photographs of the find but did so under condition anonymity.”

Inscriptions on this little guy’s tomb identified him as Osirunet, meaning sent from heaven. Apparently, he enjoyed steady employment as counselor to kings and pharaohs.

I couldn’t find any primary news sources running this story but here’s a link to a quasi-reputable news source.
