Tomb of Ankhmahor (Physician's tomb) Tomb of Ankhmahor (Physician's tomb)
Drawing courtesy of Barry Bandstra

The tomb is next to that of Kagemni. The tomb is renown for scenes of surgical operations, particularly on a toe and a circumcision, hence its reference to as 'the physician's tomb.'

In spite of that Ankhmahor was recorded as a priest. Of course the tomb includes other everyday scenes and interesting funerary reliefs.

The tomb is unfortunately closed at the meantime. The drawing above is for a circumcision operation, part of the inscriptions of the tomb.
