The tomb o f Khety II is located between the tomb o f Itiibi, his probable father, to the south and that o f Khety I, which is thought to be the earliest o f the three, to the north. Khety II governed as a nomarch of the 13th Upper Egyptian nome during the 10th Dynasty and served under the Herakleopolitan king Merikare. The tomb was first recorded by the savants o f the French expedition to Egypt in 1799. The tomb's autobiographical inscriptions are crucial for establishing the history of the country during the First Intermediate Period; as a result scholars have focussed on them since the 19th Century.9 The main epigraphic documentation was produced by Francis Llewellyn Griffith in 1889,10 and a revised Version of his work was published later in 1935 by Pierre Montet.  Since then, no major archaeological investigation has been conducted there with the exception o f the short visits by Diana Magee1  in 1986 and Donald Spanel13 in 1987. Before the Asyut Project began its work, the tomb's architectural features had never been adequately documented, and no systematic excavation had ever been conducted there. Furthermore, no facsimile drawings are published as yet. The recent work in the tomb o f Khety II has yielded interesting results concerning the tomb's architectural features and its history, which are the focal point o f this article.
