These women are therefore the personification of the domains, and the legends which accompany them specify the names of these; all of which end with the sign signifying a town or city. The remains of these tombs make it possible to understand how the inhabitants of the time lived, thanks to representations or objects of high quality, objects that were analyzed in a precise way. Even if the outside shape was almost unchangeable during the Old Kingdom, this was not the case for the interior arrangement.

The main well shaft to the burial chamber lies to the west of the chapel of Ptahhetep, which it is claimed, originally contained a stone sarcophagus in the burial vault.
