Abstract:

"Iniuia, a high official under King Tutankhamun, started his career as Scribe of the Treasury of the Lord of the Two Lands in Memphis. Next he became overseer of the cattle of Amun and High Steward of Memphis, His tomb, situated just south of the tomb of General Horemheb, was excavated in 1993 by the Joint Expedition of the Egypt Exploration Society and the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden. There are two chapels, one of which is decorated with painted scenes showing Iniuia and his family officiated before the gods of the beyond. They are the finest wall-paintings found to date in the New Kingdom necropolis at Saqqara. The walls of the other chapel are covered with pained reliefs in a style which is reminiscent of the art of Amarna. The scenes show Iniuia performing various activities in his capacity of a high official of the king. The chapel has a pyramid, one of the best preserved examples of its kind discovered in Saqqara up to now. The book contains chapters on the architecture of the tomb, on the decoration of both chapels including reliefs, other monuments and objects from Iniuia's tomb but now in museum collections, such as the anthropoid sarcophagus on Iniuia in the Musée du Louvre. Apart from chapters on the objects and the skeletal remains found in the tomb - the latter by Eugen Strouhal - the book contains a comprehensive contribution by Barbara G. Aston on the pottery found in the tomb of Iniuia and surrounding area."--Page 4 of cover.
