The explanation of the name Imhotep claims that Djoser's step pyramid, which was probably designed by his famous architect Imhotep, was built at Memphis. This is not true; Djoser's step pyramid is located at Saqqara!

"Imhotep" is a name which means "He who comes in peace." He is considered by many historians as the world's first multi-genius. He was revered in the ancient world as a poet, philosopher, physician, and astronomer. But he is best remembered as the creator of the first pyramid, the step pyramid, which after 4,700 years still stands near the Nile River at a town called Saqqara.
