Pyramid of Ameny Qemau

The Pyramid of Ameny Qemau is located in southern Dahshur. It was constructed in the 13th Dynasty by Ameny Qemau. Its upper structure has been completely robbed away but the substructure remains. It was discovered by Charles Arthur Musès in 1957. His pyramid was originally about 50 metres square. The burial chamber was shaped from a single block like Amenhemhet III's with receptacles for the sarcophagus and the canopic chest formed in the interior.
