This chapter discusses the fragments of door-jambs recovered from the First Pillared Hall of the tomb of Karakhamun and purportedly belonging to Padihor, the [overseer] of the outline draftsmen and chamberlain of the God's Wife. An intrusive burial chapel with a shaft was found in the southwest corner of the First Pillared Hall. On the north side of the chapel was an entrance erected out of blocks of sandstone and a threshold built out of bricks. All the original inscriptions on the adjacent walls and pillars were plastered to conceal the original text. The shaft in the northwest corner of the chapel leads to an unpainted burial chamber, which contained a group of objects dating to the Twenty-fifth Dynasty and could have belonged to the owner of the intrusive burial or the burial of Karakhamun himself. The chapter analyzes the religious texts inscribed upon the door frame of Padihor.
