Ancient Egyptian relief found in Cairo home

Ahram Online reports of a limestone relief from the period of Ramses II that has been found at a residential home in Cairo.  The rectangular relief has been found in the district of Matariya. It is in two pieces (there are pictures on the link) and is inscribed with the words "King of Upper and Lower Egypt, the master of both lands, Ramses II".  The relief now lies in the Egyptian Museum before going on display.
