Rare 3rd Dynasty Mastaba Found in Quesna
http://www.drhawass.com/wp/rare-3rd-dyn ... in-quesna/
The site of Quesna situated on a large sand gezira in the Central Nile Delta was until recently best known for its Late Period to Roman remains. [...]
However, in 2010 a mud-brick monument was located in the north of the site along with beer jars dating to the early Old Kingdom. The shape of this monument suggested that it was a mastaba, but further investigations were needed to fully understand the architecture and its exact date. In summer 2014 the team once again turned their attention to this enigmatic monument. The excavations revealed the tomb to be 14.1 m long north-south, by 6.0 m wide east-west, with a corridor chapel 3.0 m wide nearly running the length of its east side. It is a tripartite tomb, with the southern section having a rubble fill representing the primordial mound of creation, the northern section containing the burial shaft and the serdab, with the central section holding the double burial chamber.[...]
Unfortunately none of the inscribed elements of the tomb had survived to inform the team as to the identity of the tomb-owner. However, in the last few days of the excavation an extraordinary artefact was found in one of the two burial niches, a seal impression bearing the name of King Khaba within a serekh. This little known king of the 3rd Dynasty, who probably reigned for only six years, is best known from the stone vessels bearing an inscription of his serekh from mastaba Z500 at Zawiyet el-Aryan (ZeA). The unfinished Layer Pyramid at ZeA was probably built for this king, although no remains of his burial were found.

Op verschillende web- en nieuwssites wordt vermeld dat het zou gaan om een mastaba van de farao Chaba zelf. Ik vind dat persoonlijk (IMvHO) maar een eigenaardige & overhaaste conclusie, maar het wordt ook in ons Vlaanderenland hardnekkig aangehouden:

Tombe van onbekende farao Khaba ontdekt in Egypte

De graftombe of mastaba werd in 2010 al ontdekt. Het gaat om een gebouw van 14 op 6 meter. Enkele dagen geleden is dan een steen met een zegel en de naam Khaba ontdekt.
