Qurnet Murrai ( Western Thebes )

Site in Western Thebes on south-west of the Ramesseum with cementary of nobles. Situated on the lower slopes is the TT40 - tomb of Huy, also called Amenhotep. The walls are thinly coated with mud plaster. Its main interest lies in the scenes of Nubian notables and the taxes of Kush. Scenes show Huy invested as viceroy, sailing to Nubia, and rows of taxes and presents, furniture, gold, bows and shields. Tutankhamon is shown in a light shelter under a canopy receiving these object, and also receiving presents from Kush. The inner chamber with four pillars is very ruined.
