Tomb of Khety (Herakleopolitan Period at Siut)

As for any dissident or any ignorant who will overturn (the tomb endowment) after this which he has heard, [his] name will not exist, [he will not] be buried in the necropolis, he will be cooked together with criminals, who the god has planted obstacles against, [his] local god rejects him, and his town rejects him.
