Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Setka


Eighth/Ninth Dynasties

Setka was a mortuary priest with particular concern for the pyramid of King Pepy II. He enjoyed the rank of Count and the appointment of 'Overseer of the Phyles of Upper Egypt'. He had a tomb of his own at Aswan, overlooking the island of Elephantine, which contains some fine paintings, a fact which indicates that standards did not all collapse after the end of the Old Kingdom.
