Tomb C at Sheikh Ibada


The site consisted of the remains of a number of pits, identified by depressions in the ground.

Most were ransacked, severely decayed, or both. This tomb was found "barely one hundred meters from the Mer-Khent burial site" (Tomb A). It "had similarly escaped the notice of ancient searchers [and] yielded a sarcophagus and a certain number of pieces of its furniture"
