The ruins of the Pyramid of Djoser lie in the necropolis of Saqqara, Egypt, northwest of Memphis. The pyramid is the centerpiece of a large mortuary complex and represents a stepped prototype that foreshadows later, true pyramids. The structure consists of six mastabas of decreasing size that are built atop one another. The pyramid originally measured ca. 62 m tall and was 109 x 125 m at the base.
