A massive black granite sarcophagus has been discovered in Egypt. It was found in a tomb 5 meters (16 feet) below the surface alongside an alabaster sculpture of a male head, thought to be that of the occupant. The lid of the 265-cm (104-in) sarcophagus is sealed with mortar, indicating that it has not been removed in its 2,000-year entombment. The find occurred in Alexandria, and is thought to be the largest sarcophagus ever discovered there.

The find came as the result of a land inspection at a potential building site in the Sidi Gaber district of Alexandria. The sarcophagus measures 265 cm (104 in) long, 165 cm (65 in) deep and 185 cm (73 in) deep. The identity of the occupant is unknown.

Or a much older mummy from a Pre-Egyptian era...
Now that would be even more impressive than a ancient curse trying to walk the Earth.
Lets face it - any supernatural deity woken now, will get up to speed with the current situation, and immediately demand to be buried for another thousand years.

I think this might be the Pharaoh Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV) that cause some trouble during his rule and introduced monotheism.
After his death most of his statues and mentions in the writings was destroyed.
