The Egyptian Museum's inventory committee will not finish its work in less than two years, said Ra’fat al-Nabarawy, a member of the committee.
It will form seven subcommittees after Eid al-Fitr, which takes place at the end of August this year, to help the main committee and ensure that none of the artifacts are fake, Nabarawy added.
Around 1700 relics in the museum have been checked by the committee so far and all have been proved originals, Nabarawy said.
The committee also found two pieces previously thought to have been stolen from the museum after 28 January, known as the Friday of Anger.
