CAIRO - Egyptian archaeologists found a cache of coins from the time of the Pharaohs, according to a report in Cairo's Al-Ahram newspaper.

On coin portrayed Pharaoh's dream of the seven lean and seven fat cows and had the name of Joseph inscribed on it.

"Joseph's name appears twice on this coin, written in hieroglyphs: once the original name, Joseph, and once his Egyptian name, Saba Sabani, which was given to him by Pharaoh when he became treasurer. There is also an image of Joseph, who was part of the Egyptian administration at the time," the report stated.
