Al Hammamia Cemetery lies near the village of Al Hammamia (in Al Badari city), almost 50 km south-east of the city of Assiut. In the cemetery, there is a number of tombs belonging to princes and rulers of the tenth Nome of Upper Egypt known of different epochs, especially from the Fifth Dynasty (2560 BC). The Hammamia Cemetery (also known as ‘Kaw el Keber’ or ‘Qaw Al Kabeer’) dates back to the reign of Userkaf and Sahura. It consists of a number of rock-cut tombs in the cliff face on the eastern bank of the Nile belonging to Monarchs or provincial governors. One can reach them via a stepped causeway from the village. Also found at the Cemetry of el-Hammamiya were many Old Kingdom tombs. Among them are three decorated tombs, belonging to the reign of Khufu. The first tomb, facing the top of the steps belongs to Kakhent, who held the titles ‘Chief of the Tens of Upper Egypt’ and ‘Overseer of works in the nomes of Upper Egypt’. The second tomb on an upper level also belongs to another Kakhent, ‘Chief of the Tens of Upper Egypt’ and ‘Overseer of the Guilds of Upper Egypt’. Below the tomb of Kakhent and his wife Ify there is another unfinished tomb belonging to Nemu.
