Nefer's Tomb, Saqarra

Nefer's Tomb

This tomb is located to the south of Unas' causeway in the wall of a cliff. The tomb is one of the best preserved old kingdom tombs, and took some doing to get into! Below is Nefer's Mummy, still located in the tomb and and accessed by a ladder place in a shaft on the left side of the tomb. (Under the lamp on the table in the above image) At the bottom we see an example of the stunning reliefs found in this tomb, in this case Nefer seated on a throne opposite his wife, with a laden offering table in between.
