Tomb of Ahmose


Ahmose is quite battered, and is quite different from the other tombs in the cliff. Where they are usually as series of squarish room with pillars, Ahmose’s tomb is a long, narrow corridor, then a long, narrow transverse hall.

 

There is a lovely relief of a victorious Akhenaton in a chariot –a though there is little evidence that he actually led his army anywhere, much less into battle.
