This chapter focuses on the discovery of a previously unknown high steward of the Divine Wife, Padibastet, who was probably buried in the tomb of Karabasken. In 2013, the Mission of the South Asasif Conservation Project, under the direction of Elena Pischikova, discovered on the left side in front of the entrance niche to the Pillared Hall of Karabasken's tomb, a stela hewn into the rock. In 2014, it was confirmed that Padibastet used the unfinished tomb of Karabasken for his own burial. He possesses the “classical” titles of a High Steward of the Twenty-sixth Dynasty. His father is Pabasa, who is known by the same name and title as one of the sons of the high steward Pabasa. Padibastet must also have been in office under the God's Wife Nitocris. The chapter first traces the genealogy of Padibastet before analyzing the vignette and text of the stela.
