Following the publication of the Northern Cliff of Deir el-Gebrawi, the Australian Centre for Egyptology has undertaken a season of re-recording the tomb of Ibi and other surrounding smaller tombs on the Southern Cliff. Originally recorded by Davies in 1900 and published in 1902, the tomb of Ibi represents an important document on the administration and the provincial life in the period Merenre to early Pepy II. Ibi was an important governor of two provinces, Nos. 8 and 12 of Upper Egypt and was probably linked to the royal in-laws at Abydos. The new publication includes new line drawings showing the present condition of the scenes and inscriptions, accompanied by line drawings of the same scenes retraced from Davies' publication. As the decoration of these tombs was done in painting, all the photographs are published in colour and showing the present condition of the walls after a major conservation program by the ACE in conjunction with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities.
