What encouraged the tomb owner to prepare two tombs? The difficulty of determining the reasons for such dual tomb ownership can be generally supplied with inconsistent variables of data. Primarily, a cautious analysis of the officials epithets, status and career promotions will be crucial as part of any synthesis, moving from modifications in socio-economic status within the royal court, political events, and both geological and architectural formations of the tomb. The latter may include the physical location of the tombs and its rock strata. The two tombs owner accession to an important status, gave him the right to a special burial, afforded by his feeling of self-importance assuming such privilege of a second tomb after his promotion. Furthermore, political and socio-economic status, chronological phases of date of construction and possibly the hierarchical elevations or religious promotions sometimes required cultic dual burial sites
