The tomb of the Vizier Khnumhotep was discovered by de Morgan in 1894 in Dahshur. It is part of the necropolis attached to the pyramid of Senusret III (cf. Porter and Moss, Topographical Bibliography...Memphis, vol. 3, Oxford, 1931, p. 229). Khnumhotep (meaning 'Khnum is content') came from a family of local nomarchs who served the kings of the 12th Dynasty. Under Senusret II, he was sent on several missions, including to the Red Sea and Byblos, before becoming Vizier under Senusret III. Another fragment inscribed for Khnumhotep is located in the Hermitage Museum (inv. no. 18230).
