Chapter Summary

The tomb of Iahmes, son of Psamtikseneb, was discovered in autumn 2003, during our thirteenth excavation campaign at Saqqara. Like numerous tombs previously discovered, it is accessed via a shaft hewn into the structure of an older Old Kingdom mastaba. The sand fill contained animal bones and numerous ceramic vessels, some of which were practically complete. The mummy of Iahmes was placed in a supine position with his head towards the south and his feet north. The chest was discovered on the rocky floor against the northern wall of the chamber, a few centimeters from the foot of Iahmes' coffin.
