Tomb Two Brothers - Nekht-Ankh and Khnum-Nekht at Rifeh


In 1907 Petrie excavated the rock-tombs of the XIIth dynasty at Rifeh. Most of these had been plundered, but he found an intact tomb cut into the courtyard of the larger tomb of Aa-khnumu. Petrie describes it as follows (references to plates removed):
It was at the east end of the south side of the courtyard [...] A descending slope led to a small chamber barely large enough to hold the funeral furniture, 80 inches long, 70 wide at the south-east back and only 50 in front.
