Tomb of Horus Ninetjer

Next

A structure quite similar to the tomb of Hotepsekhemwi was found to the east of it, slightly more away from the much more recent pyramid of Unas at Saqqara.

A cursory examination has brought to light some seals bearing the name of the 2nd Dynasty king Ninetjer, which has allowed us to identify this tomb as Ninetjer's.

When it was first entered by archaeologists, it was also found to contain thousands of mummies of the Late Dynastic Period and later. These mummies clearly belonged to intrusive burials of that date.
