Substructure of Paser's tomb

The substructure consists of a shaft of 6.80 m and two chambers. The inner chamber has a sarcophagus-pit for the owner's burial. Three robber's break-throughs provide access to adjacent tombs of Late Period date. Two fragmentary limestone shabtis inscribed for Paser demonstrate that the burial was actually carried out. Heaps of pottery found in the south storeroom and on the forecourt and a number of votive stelae attest the performance of funerary rituals for the deceased. The tomb was robbed but does not appear to have been re-used by later generations, although a Coptic rubbish dump gradually filled part of its forecourt.
