Tomb 2757 at Saqqara

Description:

Tomb 2757 contained the double burial of inpw-m-h3t and Wsr-mwt (Quibell 1927, 11-5; Porter and Moss 1931, 145; 1978, 549-550). The chamber was stepped, the later burial of Wsr-mwt being placed on a ledge between the chamber and shaft. Both burials were in double coffins and accompanied by models. The set belonging to Inpw-m-h3t comprised a granary (Quibell 1927, 14, p1.25:1, model 11), rope makers (JE 46765. 1927, 14, p1.25:2; Breasted 1948, 55), a carpenter's shop 54 (Quibell 1927, 14, p1.24:2, model 14), 4 boats (JE 46766-7, 29/12/15 /3. 1927, 14, pls. 22:1-2, 23:1, models 15, 17-8), a combined bakerbrewer- butcher (1927, 15, p1.24:1; Breasted 1948, 42), 2 offeringbearers (JE 46771-2. Quibell 1927, 15, p1.26:2; Breasted 1948, 62) and a weaver's shop (Quibell 1927, 15, p1.26:1; Breasted 1948, 53). The set belonging to Wsr-mwt consisted of 2 boats . (Quibell 1927, 12, models 5-6), a granary ( 1927, 14, model 8), a storehouse (JE 45496?. 1927, 13) and a pair of offerers (JE 46773. 1927, 13). The pottery from the tomb is comparable with that of K3-rnn, possibly a little earlier. The model types and their execution are certainly comparable. The masks from the tomb have been dated PIP to Senwosret I and late 11 dyn. to early 12 dyn. (Rogge 1986, 53-4), but an 11 dyn. date is preferred.
