Archaeologists have hinted at a key breakthrough in finding the final resting place of the Egyptian queen Cleopatra — a hidden tomb where she was allegedly buried with her lover Mark Antony after their death .

The find was made during careful excavations at Taposiris Magna, a temple with many passages and tombs in the Nile Delta, according to Science Channel.

Scientists have found “an undisturbed tomb decorated with gold leaf «, which, according to the new documentary,» could be the answer to the 2,000-year-old mystery of Cleopatra's final resting place. » reports the channel about the finds, which will be featured in the 2-hour film «Cleopatra: Sex, Lies an d Secrets «. The film follows a team of scientists led by Dr. Caitlin Martinez, who describes herself as «a Dominican archaeologist in search of Cleopatra.» Social networks have already hinted at numerous breakthroughs in information about the queen.

Cleopatra became the last queen of Egypt. She was crowned at age 18 and became one of the most famous female rulers in history.

Nevertheless, she is associated with «seduction, beauty and scandal.» She is called «an icon of popular culture and one of the least studied but important female figures in history.» She became the heroine of numerous films and books, but until now scientists could not find her tomb, although news of a possible find periodically appears in the press.

It is believed that Cleopatra died at the age of 39, and was buried with her beloved by Mark Anthony, giving rise to more than 2,000 years of mystery about the exact location of her tomb. Now, perhaps the tomb will be found.
