Tombs of the Nobles in Aswan

The Tombs of the Nobles in Aswan are located on high slopes across from Aswan, just north of Kitchener's Island, where well-preserved tombs, south of the gatekeepers, and other dignitaries were on ancient Elephantine Island.

These cemeteries are still being excavated and researched on other cemeteries, where six decorated graves were currently open to the public between 2014 and 2017 A.D.

The tombs of the father and son Mykho and Sabini, date back to the long reign of the Pharaoh Babi from the 22nd dynasty. Sculptures in Kabsabani record how his army and leaders gathered in Nubia to punish the tribe which was responsible for the murder of his father during a previous military campaign and recovers his father's body.

Upon his return, several inscriptions in Sapni's tomb retain their original colors, and there are some inscriptions for hunting, and beautiful fishing, they are depicted with his daughters in the columns hall.

The cemetery consists of an entrance hall, a pillar room, and a corridor leading to the burial chamber.
