Muhammad Eweis responded eagerly to Labib Habachi's call to return to Elephantine. He and his team had carried back to the Fayoum glowing reports of that last outpost on Egyptian soil. Pepinakht-Heqaib's tomb was first identified by Jacques de Morgan in 1894. The titles inscribed on the door jambs describe the nobleman as “hereditary prince and governor, chancellor of the King of Lower Egypt and sole friend, the lector-priest, and overseer of the foreign countries.” The biographical text written on the door jambs of the tomb reveal that his career fell into four phases. Henri Riad recalled Habachi's excitement when he pointed to the hieroglyphics inscribed on the passage leading to the chamber into which he had fallen. After seven years of digging and research, Labib Habachi's manuscript on his excavation of the Sanctuary of Heqaib was finally ready for publication.
