Several months back, a small boy from the village of Ab-Amon happened upon a buired column while playing out in the surrounding desert. He reported to the village elders that the column bare strange and frightening symbols that he, in his youthful exuberance, insisted were curses. While they lacked the ability to translate the ancient hieroglyphics, they did realize that such a desgin, a cartouche, was used to spell out the name of the pharaoh along with all of his royal titles. Perhaps, just perhaps, the local wizard who studied the pillar reasoned, the pillar could be linked to the tomb of the master architect Imhoptep, whose final resting place has never been found.
