Details

  • Excavator
    Hermann Junker, German, 1877–1962
  • Attested
    Iymery [II] (in S 94/160)
  • PorterMoss Date
    Dynasty 6
  • Site Type
    Stone-built mastaba
  • Shafts
    S 94; S 104; S 112; S 114; S 160
  • Remarks
    Mastaba is located along south side of Khufu Pyramid, off northeast corner of Mastaba IV just north of chapel. Junker hypothesized a larger mastaba ("Mastaba V") originally planned for this space between Mastabas IV and VI, with possibly shaft S 160 built as its main shaft. Porter-Moss considers tomb owner to be unknown, but Junker suggests it is Iymery [II]. Remains of text on false-door mentions a son Iymery. If this son refers to Iymery [I], then it is incorrect to call the owner of this tomb Iymery [II].
