These excavations revealed many features of this city, such as streets, including the Royal Street, also revealed that it showed that the city was one of the most fertile Egyptian cities, where it produced wheat crops, olives, barley, fruits, and dates.

These missions discovered large numbers of coffins, stone houses, pottery, and statues glorifying the gods, such as statues of blue Qaishani, which sanctify the god, in addition to some bronze pieces, spindle heads, wooden and stone mills, water preservation utensils and bronze tools. Currently, many of these artifacts are on display at the Kom Oshim Museum.
