A preliminary look at Theban tomb 119 and its scene of “foreign tribute”

Andrew Hunt Gordon Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 6.4 (December 2014), 7-19


Although Theban Tomb 119 is very much destroyed, it has the remains of an important scene of Aegeans and Syrians bringing valuable metal ingots, wine, animals, and perhaps perfumes and olive oil. Evidence found in the tomb suggest that the tomb owner was a mid-level member of the Amun bureaucracy, perhaps with duties over the treasury of Amun, and responsible for animals and food stuffs entering the Amun warehouses. He was probably part of extended family of the vizier Aametu, and Ineni.
