The Teti Cemetery at Saqqara: Volume 9: the tomb of Remni

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

The mud brick mastaba of Remni was recently discovered in the North West corner of the Teti Cemetery. All four walls of its one room chapel are covered with scenes of daily life, painted on mud plaster and thus preserving for us a good example of this rarely preserved type of decoration. The artist succeeded in including a large variety of topics at a miniature scale in a limited space. The owner, Remni, held titles connected with the personal service of the king and represents two wives in the decoration of his chapel, both apparently important and possibly with royal connection.
