The Pyramid of Unas is a smooth-sided pyramid built in the 24th century BC for the Egyptian pharaoh Unas, the ninth and last king of the Fifth Dynasty.
Who is king Unas?
Unas is an ancient Egyptian pharaoh and the last ruler of
the Fifth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom. His reign is dated
between 2375 BC and 2345 BC Unas is believed to have
two queen wives, Neptune and Khinute, based on their
burials near his tomb.
He was born in the 24th century BC
The pyramid of Unas is located in the pyramids of
Saqqara, and it is the pyramid built by Unas, the last king
of the Fifth Dynasty, and was known at the time as the
beautiful places of Unas, but now it is ruined and looks like
a small mass, not like a royal pyramid.
The texts covering the walls of the burial chambers inside
the pyramid was the first discovery of the pyramid texts.
In the same burial room, the remains of a mummy were
found, including the skull, the right arm, and the leg, but it
is not known if these remains belong to Unas or not? To
the northeast of the pyramid, there is a terrace that
contains the tombs of the king's consort.
It is believed that in the inscriptions of the pyramid of Unas
inside the burial room, there are some writings in a Semitic
dialect, written in ancient Egyptian letters, which is
the oldest evidence of the existence of a written Semitic
is one of the villages of the Badrashin Center in Giza
Governorate in the Arab Republic of Egypt. According to
2006 statistics, the total population of Saqqara was
32,112, of whom 16,481 were men and 15,631 were
women. Saqqara contains ancient Egyptian royal tombs
of the dynasties that ruled ancient Egypt from the capital,
Memphis. It also contains a number of pyramids, including
the step pyramid of Djoser, which dates back to the era of
the Third Egyptian Dynasty, which is the oldest historically
the known completed stone building, in addition to a number
of archaeological masts.
Sixteen other Egyptian monarchs built pyramids at
Saqqara, in addition to some funerary monuments built by
some high-ranking officials in ancient Egypt, and the area
extending from the pyramids of Giza to Dahshur through
Saqqara was classified as a World Heritage Site by
UNESCO in 1979 AD.
