The Lepsius I Pyramid is the ruin of a large mud brick monument in Abu Rawash near Cairo. It has, so far, not been attributed to any ruler. It is located east of the Pyramid of Djedefre. It owes its enigmatic name to its discoverer, the Egyptologist Karl Richard Lepsius, who placed it first in his list of the pyramids of Egypt. The shape of the monument is still subject to debate since some Egyptologists see it as a mastaba.
