The second season of fieldwork at the necropolis of Asyut gave a clearer picture of the Siutian nomarchs' tombs from the First Intermediate Period and the early Middle Kingdom. The joint mission of the Universities of Mainz, Sohag and Münster cleared up the architecture and several phases of utilization of Tomb III and IV, documented the decoration of the Northern Soldiers-Tomb and started making facsimiles in Tomb I. In addition, late antique columns originally belonging to a sacral building and stemming from the ancient town were identified.
