 Tomb of Kheruef; Royal Steward in the court of Amenhotep III. Evidently, Kheruef was a man of some importance at the height of his career - he was a Royal Scribe and First Herald to the King, he was later appointed Steward to Queen Tiye.

This tomb, however, was not finished and Kheruef was probably never buried here - it appears that Khereuf suffered a fall from grace before his death, his name in the tomb has been excised - the reason for this fall from grace is not known.

Scenes in the tomb:

The scenes that were finished in the tomb show celebrations in honour of Amenhotep III's jubilees (Kheruef would have been involved in the organisation of these events). Other scenes include dancing girls and various sporting activities:
