"Ancient Priest's Tomb Painting Discovered Near Great Pyramid at Giza" (Owen Jarus, Live Science Contributor, 15 July 2014)
Quote:
"A wall painting, dating back over 4,300 years, has been discovered in a tomb located just east of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The painting shows vivid scenes of life, including boats sailing south on the Nile River, a bird hunting trip in a marsh and a man named Perseneb who's shown with his wife and dog. ... The new painting was discovered in 2012 by a team from the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which has been excavating these tombs since 1996. ... The three rooms contain 11 statues showing depictions of Perseneb and members of his family. First recorded in the 19th century by the German explorer Karl Richard Lepsius and French Egyptologist Auguste Mariette, the tomb is believed to date to the middle or late Fifth Dynasty (ca. 2450-2350 B.C.). ..."

May be the whole inscription was skA m Hs.t - cultivating by a herd of sheep

One can see the same szene (herd of sheep treading seed into the earth) in the mastaba-tomb of Ty (5th Dynasty, Saqqara).
