Inerkhau tomb

Still recognisable from the time of Bruyère (Bruyère plate 18) is the hole in the arched summit which received the beam formed by two half palms, and which extended to the east wall. This beam was supported at its middle by a wooden pillar. Beam and pillar have disappeared completely, taking with its removal the whole section of the wall which held the upper part of the image of the god Ptah.
This unique scene, which constituted the centre-piece of the whole chamber and which occupied the whole wall, testified by its measurements to its special importance.
