Zoser's Necropolis, at Egypt, -2760.|
Imhotep existed as a mythological figure in the minds of most scholars until the end of the nineteenth century when he was established as a real historical personage. Revered as a god, a patron of scribes, a sage, and leader, Imhotep is often considered the first true architect.
Although Imhotep has been credited with innumerable architectural achievements, the only certainty is that he built the complex of King Neterikhet at Saqqara. His name inscribed on the north side of the enclosure wall of Sekhemkhet's unfinished pyramid suggest that he was also responsible for this later project.
Imhotep is comsidered to be the earliest known named architect.
