In the north wall of the tomb, the mission found the entrance to a unique substructure, which is for the first time clearly inspired by the design of the substructures of the royal pyramids of the Fifth Dynasty, Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, told Xinhua.

They hope the tomb will give them a better understanding of the 40-year reign of Djedkare Isesi. The fifth Dynasty spanned from the 25th to the 24th century BCE. The pharaoh was also notable for devolving power to provincial rulers around Egypt, weakening the authority of the centralized administration.

Saqqara served as the necropolis for Memphis, the capital of ancient Egypt for more than two millennia.

The discovery was made while carrying out excavation and documentation survey.

Leading archaeologist Mohamed Megahed said Khuwy's tomb is L-shaped, with a small corridor leading to a larger room decorated with images depicting the life of the nobleman.
