Hawara the tomb of Horwedja; date: 30th Dynasty
The tomb named by Petrie 'the tomb of Horwedja' is the burial place for many
individuals. Several mummies were found adorned with amulets, some of them
were gilt. The tomb contained about 400 shabtis (now in different collections;
and four canopic jars now in Cairo). The sarcophagus of Horwedja was made
of limestone with three inner coffins.
