This tomb, discovered by Mariette in 1865, is an important source of knowledge about the Old Kingdom. Ti was an important court dignitary, being one of the Chief of the Pharaoh's hairdressers and responsible for the adornment of the Royal Head! He was also the controller of ponds, stock rearing and arable farms. Three shafts lead down to the burial chambers. Ti's burial chamber is not decorated and his sarcophagus is rather plain. There is a statue of Ti; however, but bear in mind that it is only a replica - the original can be seen in the museum of Cairo.
