The pyramid is located about 100m south of Userkaf's
pyramid. Neferhetepes was a queen of Userkaf and is one of the largest queen
pyramids of the old kingdom. Although her name is not found on or near Userkaf's
complex . On the basis of an indirect clue found in an inscription in the
nearby tomb of the priest Persen (now in the Berlin Museum, no. 15004) the
name Neferhetepes has been given her. The pyramid is in a very ruined state.
It originally had a three level core, and its mantle consisted of blocks of
fine white limestone. It is structurally separate from Userkaf's complex and
has its own perimeter wall.
