The tomb belonged to a woman named Chetpet — close Pharaoh of the fifth dynasty. The walls of the tombs made of mud bricks, covered with wall paintings. Some of the patterns imprinted itself Chetpet, which oversees hunting and fishing. Other scenes depicted the domesticated monkeys who are trained to gather fruit or to dance to the music.
The mummy women are not detected. However, archaeologists believe that in the Western part of the Giza necropolis, lost another tomb Chetpet.
