The ancient discovery by Egyptologist Zaki Saad back in 1940 is located in Saqqara, an ancient burial ground in Egypt serving as the necropolis for the Ancient Egyptian capital. The tomb belonged to Mehu, the Chief of judges and the Director of the palace at the time of the first King of the 6th dynasty, King Titi,  according to the Archeologist and Egyptologist Zahi Hawass.
