Substructure of Tatia's tomb

The aperture of Tatia's shaft is located in front of his chapel. It has a roughly made limestone edge to accommodate the slabs of the lid, which had already disappeared due to robbery. Next to the shaft's opening, several shallow saucers had carefully been put in the sand. These had served in order to light a little lamp for the deceased. The first metre of the shaft is revetted in limestone, and it then continues as a rock-cut pit to a depth of 5.25 m. It has a north chamber (A) with separate mummy-niche (B) and an irregular south chamber (C). Several breakthroughs connect this complex with a number of adjacent tombs and shafts.
