PICTURES: Tomb of “new” pharaoh Senebkay

Incredible colour left in the decoration of the tomb.

Note the cartouche beneath the Horus wings, that is of Senebkay, we know him to be a King as he has the son or Ra Hieroglyphics accompanying it.

Common funerary iconography, we can see Ankhs (life) held by the goddesses Neith and Nut, and the Wadjet eyes of Horus (protection, royalty, health) beneath the wings of Horus.

Pillaged goods: Not much remains because the tomb was looted, probably in antiquity.

Best wishes,

Ankh Nfr
