Mastaba of Hetepu

One of the largest mastabas in this part of the necropolis belonged to an inspector of the Great House named Hetepu. The mastaba has been prepared for two persons; the northern shaft contained remains of a male, probably Hetepu himself, while in the southern one remains of a female, possibly his wife, were found.
