The mastaba of Kagemni is situated right next door
to the mastaba of Mereruka. The tomb was discovered in 1843 by Richard Lepsius
and excavated in in 1893 by Jacques de Morgan. Kagemni was vizier to Teti
and overseer to his pyramid. There are some quite beautiful and the decorative
bas reliefs, a style finer than Mereruka but the colors not so well preserved.
The themes are agricultural, fishing in the swamps, and presentations of offerings.
