A new coffin unearthed from Egypt has some people saying, "D'oh!"

Archeologists recently excavated several coffins from a recently discovered 3,500-year-old cemetery in Minya, Egypt, The Archaeologist announced in a news release on Tuesday, June 4.

Since then, images of one of the coffins has caught the attention of the internet, with many comparing a figure depicted in the lid of the sarcophagus to the popular Simpsons character Marge Simpson, according New York Post.

The upper lid of one of the coffins features a drawing of what appears to be a female donning a body length strapless green outfit — similar to what Marge wears — according to photos obtained by the Post. The figure also appears have a large blue rectangle on her head, which some have likened to Marge’s iconic sky high blue hair.

According to the photos shared by the Post and The Archaeologist, several other Egyptian figures in similar light green outfits are seen crouching along either side of the larger figure with hieroglyphs written above them.

One person even drew an inference to the cartoon, writing, “Egyptians and Greeks were neighbors so it’s not too crazy that she married Homer.”

According to The Egyptian Gazette, the coffin belonged to Tadi Ist, daughter of the High Priest of Djehouti in Ashmunein. Inside the coffin, the mummified person appeared to have a mask and a beaded dress laid on top of her body.

“It is a rare and important scene ever. Every scene of the hour has its shape,” the Supreme Council of Antiquities Secretary General Mostafa Waziry said, per The Egyptian Gazette.

Another mummy housed in a wooden coffin was found alongside that one and is believed to have belonged to a woman named Nany, who was a chantress of Djehouti. Her coffin is estimated to date back to the end of the 20th Dynasty, per the outlet.

A papyrus measuring about 16 or 18 meters that appeared to discuss the Book of the Dead was also found, along with several artifacts including canopic jars and funerary figurines made out of pottery and wood. Waziry said, per The Egyptian Gazette, that the papyrus would be displayed “in the Grand Egyptian Museum.”

Archaeologists believed the cemetery was the final resting place for senior officials and priests during the New Kingdom period of Egypt from 1550 BC to 1069 BC, according to The Egyptian Gazette and the Post.
