Tomb of Pabes (found in 1986)

View over the tomb of PabesPabes, whose tomb is situated directly behind that of Khay , was the latter's (eldest?) son. Like his father, he acted as a Troop-commander of Traders, though in his case his employer appears to have been the Memphite temple of Ptah. Since Pabes is not represented in his father's tomb, he may have predeceased him and in that case Khay himself may have paid for the funerary monument. This means that the tomb is roughly contemporaneous with that of Khay himself: second half of the 19th or beginning of the 20th Dynasty (c. 1250-1175 B.C.). Pabes' monument was excavated in 1986.
