Tombs of the South Asasif Necropolis

Dieter Eigner

American University in Cairo Press

Eigner revisits and builds on earlier work done on Karakhamun's tomb in the 1970s, through the new excavations of the South Asasif Project. He presents a plan of the tomb, as well as section drawings, and a detailed discussion of the decoration and architectural features of the tomb. He draws comparisons to other relevant tombs, such as TT 37 Hawra and TT 390 Irtieru, and explains how they follow the principles of temple architecture.
