Tomb of 5th Dynasty top official Hetpet discovered near Pyramid of Khafre on Giza Plateau

[Minister of Antiquities Khaled] El-Enany explained that blocks of the tomb were unearthed in 1909 by a British explorer who sent them to Berlin and Frankfurt.[...]
The newly discovered tomb belongs to a lady named Hetpet, a top official in the royal palace during the end of the 5th Dynasty.
Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities and the head of the mission, told Ahram Online that the tomb has the architectural style and decorative elements of the 5th Dynasty, with an entrance leading to an “L” shape shrine with a purification basin.
On its western rear end there is a rectangular arcade lined with incense and offering holders. There is also a naos with a yet missing statue of the tomb’s owner. The tomb has very distinguished wall paintings in a very good state of conservation depicting “Hetpet” standing in different hunting and fishing scenes or sitting before a large offering table receiving offerings from her children.
“Scenes of reaping fruits, melting metals and the fabrication of leather and papyri boats as well as musical and dancing performances are also shown on walls,” Waziri said. He added that among the most distinguished paintings in the tomb are those depicting two monkeys in different positions. Monkeys were domestic animals at the time.
The first scene shows a monkey reaping fruits while the second displays a monkey dancing in front of an orchestra. Similar scenes are found in other tombs. The first one is painted on the wall of a 12th Dynasty tomb of Khnoum Hetep II in Beni Hassan in Minya governorate; the second is found in the Old Kingdom tomb of Ka-Iber in Saqqara, though it displays a dancing monkey in front of a guitarist not an orchestra.

Archeologen ontdekken 4.400 jaar oude tombe van Egyptische priesteres

De wanden van de tombe zijn versierd met uitzonderlijk goedbewaarde schilderingen, waarop Haptet uitkijkt over diverse jacht- en vistaferelen. Volgens de leider van het onderzoeksteam, Mostafa Al-Waziri, is op de schilderingen ook een aap te zien.
Apen werden in de tijd van Haptet gehouden als huisdieren. Het beest doet zich op de muurschildering in de tombe te goed aan fruit en danst voor een orkest op een andere afbeelding.
Al-Waziri denkt dat Haptet, die blijkbaar dicht bij het Egyptische koningshuis stond, een tweede tombe in het westelijke grafveld van Gizeh had. Daar liggen hoge ambtenaren uit de dynastieën van het Oude Rijk begraven. Het graafwerk naar het tweede graf begint binnenkort.

This site, in Giza's western cemetery, housed officials from the Old Kingdom's Fifth Dynasty, some of which have already been dug up since 1842.
"We know of course that she was a high official and that she had a strong link with the royal palace," Egyptian Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani said, describing Hetpet on Saturday.
