Wall inscriptions inside the Pyramid of Teti, Saqqara, Egypt


The pyramid can be entered, and it is interesting. It is all quite similar to the interior of Unas' pyramid, built around 20 years earlier, only on a larger scale.
Walls are covered by Pyramid Texts as in Unas', but there is more damage to it here. The burial chamber is in fine condition and the huge basalt sarcophagus is in excellent condition and undamaged. It has stripes of hieroglyphic inscriptions with parts from the Pyramid Texts. A few fragments of the mummy was found the first time the sarcophagus was opened, thanks to ancient robbers.
