The Teti Cemetery at Saqqara,

Vol. Vlll, the tomb of Inumin

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Located on the northern limits of the Teti Cemetery, the Tomb of Inumin is dated to the earlier part of the reign of Pepy I. The chapel is formed of five rooms, three of which are beautifully decorated with scenes of daily life clearly influenced by the neighbouring rich tomb of Mereruka, but at the same time showing individuality in the choice of details. Like most of the viziers of this period, Inumin also had a fully decorated burial chamber. The tomb owner was an overseer of Upper Egypt under Teti and became a vizier late in his career under Pepy I.
