Modern name for the area in the Fayum where the pyramid complex of Amenemhat III of Dynasty 12 was built. The remains of the mortuary temple were later identified by the Greeks as the Labyrinth. The area was excavated by Flinders Petrie from 1888–1889 and in 1911, when in a cemetery close to the complex he discovered pits from the Roman Period that contained many burials with finely painted mummy portraits. In 1955–1956, an Egyptian expedition uncovered the intact burial of Princess Nefruptah, daughter of the king.
