Fodor's Expert Review Tomb of Userhat

The Theban Necropolis Ruins

Usherhat was a public servant during the reign of Amenhotep II, described as "the scribe who counts the bread in Upper and Lower Egypt." His tomb is a fine example of an inverted T-style, with a wide antechamber leading directly to a long, slender burial chamber. Scenes in the antechamber depict Userhat's earthly responsibilities—his counting boxes of grain and overseeing the distribution of bread rations to the Egyptian army. In the main chamber there are vivid scenes of Userhat hunting and fishing.
