Deir el-Gabrawi is a small village on the east bank of the Nile, just in front of the city of Manfalout, about 20km north east of Assiut city in Upper Egypt. The village has a necropolis that dates to the Sixth Dynasty (the Old Kingdom). This necropolis comprises a group of tombs carved in the eastern mountain to be the burial place of the rulers, governors, and princes of the twelfth Nome of Egypt, Berranti during the Old and Middle Kingdoms. These rock-cut tombs were surrounded by numerous reliefs and paintings. Among the most important tombs found at the site were those of Ibi and Gawa, where one can eye vivid depictions of daily life as well as religious scenes. Some of the walls of these tombs were stolen in 1990, but they were recuperated and replaced in their original site.
