Tomb of Maya

Saqqara Tombs - Saqqara - The Places

Maya, the Wet Nurse of Pharaoh Tutankhamun,
also known as “Great One of the Harem”,
“The One who has suckled the God”
and
“The Greatly praised one of the Perfect God”

Her Tomb was discovered in 1996 in Saqqara and is regrettably quite damaged, although much of this occurred in ancient times especially when the Tomb was reused in the Late Period through to the Roman Period, mainly to store mummified cats as the Tomb is located in the Southern outer areas of the Bubastieion, Temple of Goddess Bastet, and a fire broke out.
