Description

An account of the excavation of Senedjemib Inti (G2370), Khnumenti (G2374) and Senedjemib Mahi (G2378). Located at the northwest corner of the Great Pyramid, the Senedjemib Complex contains the well-known tombs of the Senedjemib Inti and his son Senedjemib Mehi, who served the kings Isesi and Unis respectively as viziers and overseers of royal works. Excavations in 1912-13 revealed that the two tombs formed part of a great complex of family tombs erected around a paved court, and that four generations of the Senedjemib family served as viziers of Egypt and royal architects over a hundred year period in the later old Kingdom. The tombs document changes in tomb architecture and decoration from the end of the fifth dynasty to the end of the sixth. Additionally they contain two lengthy autobiographical inscriptions.
