THE TOMB OF ANKH MAHOR
Ankh Mahor was the "Ka-Priest" during the reign of king Teti of the 6th Dynasty. His tomb is often called "the Physician's Tomb" because of the medical scenes in its doorway.
The tomb is big and contains a number of rooms and decorated doorways. It contains the most important Old Kingdom scenes like the famous circumcision scene in the doorway as well as scenes involving agriculture, offerings and fording.
