Harkhuf was also a campaign commander who traveled in missions to the foreign lands. He lived in the era of Merenre and his son Pepi II, kings of he 6th dynasty.

The entrance has biographical texts. The most interesting relief, though, is a letter sent by the then boy-King Pepi II instructing him to take care of a dancing dwarf whom he brought from the foreign lands so that to arrive to him safely.

The tomb has one hall with four columns. It is spacious but unimposing.
