The Tomb of May (tomb number 14 at Akhetaten)

His tomb was intended to have 12 columned hall - but the hall did have a relief of Mutnodjmet (sister of Nefertiti) attended by her two dwarves.

Other scenes include the King, Queen and three princesses; five boats - all painted in black outline.

Most of the inscriptions referring to May's names and titles in this tomb have been erased or painted over, showing that May fell from favour before he died (possibly no later than Year 7).
