The tomb of Hesi-Min dates back to the late fifth Dynasty, probably under the King Djedkare (2414-2375 BC). The tomb’s location was chosen carefully in the south side in El Hawawish Cemetery at the height of 190 metres.
Hesi-Min held many titles, being the ‘Overseer of the works of the King’, ‘Greatest of the ten of Upper Egypt’, and ‘Priest of Min’. His wife Shepsit-Kaw was called , the Priestess of Neith, Heqet and Hathor’. Moreover, five of his sons were presented in the decoration and texts of the tomb; Ni-ankh-Min was their eldest son.
The tomb contains three vertical shafts, one in the inner room and two in the front one, in addition to a sloping passage, and all of the shafts lead to burial chambers that are oriented north south.
