Tomb of Huya


Huya was the Steward to Queen Tiy, and Superintendent of the Royal Harem. He is shown at the entrance to the tomb with his family and Queen Tiy and two princesses, but the rest of the tomb is covered in images of Akhenaton decorating Huya and worshipping the sun god.

 

Huya’s mummy was found in the tomb, in a burial shaft below the transverse hall. There is a shrine with an unfinished statue of Huya.
