Mastabas at Saqqara : Kaiemheset, Kaipunesut, kaiemsenu, Sehetepu and others Paperback / softback

Part of the ACE Reports series

Description

Among a number of large mud-brick mastabas, west of the Teti cemetery, are the family complexes of the royal builder, Kaiemheset and the overseer of the granary, Kaiemsenu, who also held several priesthoods of Fifth Dynasty kings.

Excavated early in the last century, neither was adequately published despite the important information they contained.

Remarkable features include one of two siege scenes known from the Old Kingdom, a well preserved functional door of wood, several magnificent statues and a number of rare titles.

The proximity of these tombs to Teti's pyramid is of particular significance and their dating has been the subject of some controvesy.

The new publication attempts to give a complete record of the tombs, as well as dealing with associated problems.
