Pharaoh Djoser’s (Netjerikhet’s) sarcophagus was placed a the bottom of a central shaft by Imhotep who then built a series of limestone mastabas which were stacked on top of one another to form the Step Pyramid.

Could the central shaft have been the first grain silo that Imhotep built for the Pharaoh?

It differed from other pits used to store grain in that it was lined or cased with large decorated limestone blocks.
The limestone casing and roof of the burial chamber eventually collapsed and crushed Djoser’s sarcophagus.
(It was around 500BC when it collapsed but it was not until 2007 that the rubble could be cleared by a team lead by Dr Zahi Hawass.)

Massive underground grain storage silos can be found within the Djoser complex at Saqqara, Egypt. 

They may have been built by Joseph.
