Rakh-Mara’s Tomb

Rakh-Mara’s Tomb
This tomb, one of the biggest of the XVIIIth dynasty, belonged to Rakh-Mara who was governor of the city and visir under both Tutmose III and Amon-Ofis II. The most interesting scenes are those showing the arrival of tribute from foreign countries. Thus there are shown the envoys from Punt, from Kefti (which can perhaps be identified with Crete), and those from Ratenu who are northern Assyrians and Syrians, and finally black envoys from Kush.
