Beni Hasan (Arabic: بني حسن) is an ancient Egyptian necropolis on the east bank of the Nile. It is located approximately 20 kilometers (12 mi) to the south of modern-day Minya in the region known as Middle Egypt, the area between Asyut and Memphis. While there are some Old Kingdom burials at the site, it was primarily used during the Middle Kingdom.
