Shoshenq 3

Tomb of Sheshonq 3, Tanis, Egypt

22nd Dynasty king, Shoshenq 3's, grave is in excellent condition, and to be seen from high up. It contains rather simple decorations, and considering that Shoshenq 3 was king for more than 50 years (825-773 BCE), it is a clear reflection of the relative poverty of the state in this period.
