Pyramid of Merenre I
The Pyramid of Merenre I is located in the southern section of the Necropolis of Saqqara. It dates back to King Mer-En-Ra (Merenre) of the Sixth Dynasty. Built close to that of his father, Pepi I, Merenre's pyramid is distinguished with its unfinished state. Within the tomb's burial chamber, the body of a young man was discovered, but this was probably a later reuse of the tomb, since the unfinished chamber would have been easily entered by robbers and eventually reused as a new burial.
