Plan of Hor's tommb
Hor was an Egyptian Pharaoh of the 13th Dynasty. He appears in the Turin King List as Aut-ib-Rê. He most likely reigned only for a short time, not long enough to prepare a pyramid, which was in this dynasty still the common burial place for kings.
Hor is mainly known from his burial in a shaft tomb found at Dahshur next to the pyramid of king Amenemhat III. The tomb was found essentially intact and still contained the partly gilded coffin of the king, a naos with a statue, some jewelry, the canopic box with canopic vessels, two inscribed stelae and several other objects.
Next to the burial of the king was found the undisturbed tomb of the 'king's daughter' Nubheteptikhered. She was perhaps a daughter of King Hor.
