Fodor's Expert Review Tomb of Amun-her-khepeshef

The Theban Necropolis Ruins

This tomb was built for a prince who was a son of Ramses III (20th Dynasty). His tomb's wall paintings have very bright and lively colors and show scenes of the young prince, in the company of his father or alone, with a variety of gods. The anthropomorphic, uninscribed sarcophagus remains in the undecorated burial chamber. The tomb (it's the last one on the main road) contains an unusual item inside a glass case: the mummified remains of a fetus (not the prince himself).
