His funery goods consisted of a large number of shabti and just as his master they were made from bronze and faience. No less than 360 were made of faience, 20 of bronze and a unknown amount of overseers in bronze. Montet discovered the tomb of Psusennes I in 1939. Unfortunately, during the Second Worldwar the magazine was robbed and much of its belongings were scattered all over the world and ended up in museum and private collections.
