The head of the department of pharaonic antiquities, Mohammed Abdel Maqsud, said the heads measured 50 centimetres (20 inches) across and are estimated to be around 4,000 years old.
He said experts were studying them to determine if they belonged to decapitated statues found in the same location several years ago.
