The Tomb of Ka Hep / Theti-Iker (H26)

The tomb of “Ka Hep” dates to the reign of Pepy II during the sixth Dynasty (2278-2184 BC), which is located in the southwest corner of the al-Hawawish tombs and is distinguished by its height from the rest of the tombs next to it. As well, it contains many funerary scenes, offerings, daily life, dancing, hunting and agriculture.

The tomb's facade is distinguished by inscriptions representing the titles of “Ka Hep” and scenes of him next to his wife. While the southern wall is inscribed with a scene that shows boats carrying the funeral’s furniture. Another scene represents the owner in a fishing boat, catching two large fish, while his wife is squatted holding two lotus plants. Behind them, there are five members of the family, two men and three women.
