TT277, the tomb of Ameneminet .

The small chapel of tomb TT277 is located in the Theban necropolis, more precisely on the hill of Qurnet-Murai. It belongs to Ameneminet (or Amenemonet), a priest in the service of the god Ptah-Sokar, in the Temple of Millions of Years of king Amenhotep III. Although it is incomplete, it is in a beautiful state of conservation. Its present decoration features some of the Ramesside craftsmanship, which, for example, don't respect the proportions anymore - as the artists of the XVIIIth Dynasty made it -, a characteristic of the end of the XIXth Dynasty, which becomes more pronounced under the XXth Dynasty. It is therefore presumably from this time which dates the burial.
