Abydos after the New Kingdom

Abydos was in the Third Intermediate Period and Late Period still an important town. There are many burials of influential people including some viziers and other high officials. The pyramidion is highly like part of an important Late Period tomb, such as the tomb of the vizier Nespamedu, who is called in Assyrian texts the 'king (or count) of Thinis' (Leahy 1979).
