THE BANQUET OF
NIANKHKHNUM & KHNUMHOTEP

illustration 1999 Greg Reeder

Khnumhotep sits holding a lotus. At this time in the 5th Dynasty very few men were shown holding or smelling lotuses. In this tomb only the women ( the wives and dauhters of the two men ) are shown holding or smelling lotuses...only the women and Khnumhotep.
