Superstructure of Khay's tomb

The tomb was constructed on a high bed of rubble which had accumulated between the mudbrick monuments of Horemheb in the north and Pay in the south. It was excavated in 2009 and proved to consist of a mudbrick forecourt, an antechapel with rear sanctuary, and a pyramid. The total length is 12.5 m and the width 3.25 m. The forecourt has no north wall of its own, using Horemheb's south wall instead. It has a mud floor, whereas the chapel has preserved parts of its limestone flagstones. Some remains of the original wall-revetment in limestone have also survived in situ, including a slab along the south wall of the antechapel and part of the south screen-wall and door-jamb. These show offering scenes and three columns of hieroglyphs, all roughly carved and painted in yellow. The tomb's mudbrick pyramid and limestone pyramidion had already been found in 1992. The latter is also inscribed for Khay and his father.
