Tomb of Pabasa

Pabasa (also know as Pabes) was a high official who held the titles ‘Chief Steward of the God’s Wife Nitocris (Neitiqert)’ under the reign of the King Psamtek I (of the Twenty-Six Dynasty) in the Late Pharaonic Period (c 664-610 BC). He had his large mud-brick tomb built at El Assasif, near the Temple of Hatshepsut at El Deir el-Bahari. Entering the tomb through a staircase leading down to the subterranean levels, one can see a fine brightly-colored relief of a barque on the lintel above the doorway. The small vestibule leads to a sun court open to the sky and therefore well lit comprising three squared pillars ornamented with very finely-carved relief and beautifully-painted hieroglyphs. A hall with eight pillars lies beyond the sun court, with partly-damaged decorations once depicted gods, goddesses and texts. The granite sarcophagus of Pabasa is on display at the Glasgow Museum in Scotland. The charming decorative patterns on the ceiling are well preserved. Enchanting scenes decorating the tomb include depictions of: Osiris, Re-Horakhty, Pabasa, and Nitocris; the deceased’s funeral procession and mourners; the ‘Abydos Pilgrimage’; portraits of his son, Thahorpakhepesh; cartouches of Psamtek I and his daughter, Nitocris; as well as a long text of Pabasa. Other depictions involve scenes of the daily activities in the estate of the Divine Adoratrice and others showing men involved in spinning, fishing, bee keeping, and bird catching. Some finely-carved sunk carvings show Pabasa presenting offerings.
