The Tomb of Siremput I

The Tomb of Siremput I
Of this tomb, which belonged to the son of Zat-Seni, a prince of the Xllth dynasty, there unfortunately remains today very little to bear witness to the fact that it was the biggest and the most richly decorated in the whole necropolis. One can still see part of the surrounding wall and the limestone doorway at the entrance which has delicate bas-reliefs showing scenes from the life of the dead prince. At the end, the facade of the tomb had a portico with six pillars.
