The deceased held important positions during the reign of Neferirkara (2458-2438 to.C.), the third pharaoh of dynasty V.

The necropolis of Saqqara -the main burial complex from Memphis, about 25 kilometres south of the Giza plateau - has become a bonanza for some authorities anxious to announce findings and to promote, incidentally, a tourism that is coming back gradually after more than half a decade of political turmoil.
