Sphinx of Menkara Found in Israel

A sphinx carved with the name of the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Menkara has been found at Tel Hazor in northern Israel.

Archaeologists are uncertain how it got there, although it might have been a gift sent from the Egyptian court to the ruler of Hazor.

Here is a link to the story.
