    Second intermediate period tombs of previously unknown pharaohs of the 16th dynasty have been found near Abydos.  There are possibly 16 tombs, 10 of which have been found and 6 excavated. One of the tombs was for the pharaoh Senebkay.  His red granite sarcophagus and canopic chest were reused from the 13th dynasty pharaoh Sobekhotep.
