Dra Abu el-Naga - AN B
tomb of Amenhotep I - XVIIIth Dynasty

The tomb was discovered before 1907. For Howard Carter, tomb AN B had held a double burial of Amenhotep I and his mother , Ahmes-Nefertari. The well (E) appears to have been cut as an after-thought at the time the burial chamber (J) was extended. The changes may reflect the expansion of a queen's tomb - that of Amose-Nefertari - to receive the reburial of a king - her son, Amenhotep I. In the tomb were founded fragments of stone vessels with inscriptions of Apophis, his doughter, princess Heret, king Ahmose I, Ahmes-Nefertari and Amenhotep I.
