Tomb of Sarenput I Tomb of Sarenput I
Photo by Raymon Kondos © 2009 Your Egypt


The 12th dynasty tomb belongs to Sarenput I, the governor of Elephantine. The entrance opens to a court with six columns that once supported the ceiling. The columns bear biographical texts of Sarenput.

On the left-hand side of the doorway behind the columns, Sarenput is shown followed by his dogs and his sandal-bearer. On the right-hand, he is depicted with his mother, wife and daughters.

A doorway leads to a smaller 4-pillared hall where reliefs are unfortunately ruined and finally to the last two pillared room.
