Tomb of 'Sethnakht' (found in 2010)

This tomb is situated to the south of the tombs of Meryneith and Ptahemwia. Its walls have the same orientation as those of its two neighbours, it is built with the same format of mud-bricks, and its stratigraphy (with a floor lying 0.2 m lower than that of Ptahemwia) indicates that it must have been constructed before the Ramesside Period. Together, these characteristics suggest that the newly-found tomb against belonged to a contemporary of Akhenaten or Tutankhamun. Several architectural features of the tomb's superstructure appear to confirm this suggestion.

However, as soon as the tomb emerged from the sand, it was soon realized that it was never finished. This means that there are no wall-reliefs or inscriptions to corroborate the date proposed here. Accordingly, there has been some discussion about this issue, and some people have asserted that it was rather built in the transitional period between the post-Amarna time and the early Ramessides. Excavation of the subterranean burial complex in 2013 did not shed additional light on this matter, but at least revealed the identity of one of the persons buried there: the scribe of the temple of Ptah Sethnakht. Though he was probably not the main occupant or builder of the tomb, we shall henceforth refer to this monument as the tomb of Sethnakht.
