The First Intermediate Period Tombs at Asyut Revisited

Abstract

Three inscribed rock-cut tombs at Asyut (tombs III-V, belonging to Iti-ibi and two men called Khety) are a main source of information for the history of the First Intermediate Period as well as for the cultural memory of Ancient Egypt. In September 2003, a joint German-Egyptian mission surveyed these tombs in order to prepare the way for future epigraphic and architectural studies there. A first result of this survey was the realization that the existing plans and descriptions of the tombs are incomplete and faulty. Some current opinions concerning the decoration and architecture of the tombs can now be modified.
