Tomb of Ankherha, Workers' Village, Luxor, Egypt


Reputedly in excellent condition, the tomb of Ankherha is nevertheless the least impressive of the 3 tombs presented here. But it is larger than the tomb of Sannedjem.
The poorer condition of the wall-paintings is due to poorer quality of the limestone rock.
Look out for the full-scale image of Ankherha together with his family which is presenting offerings. In the ceiling are the events of Ankherha's life listed up.
