Tomb Of Amenhotep II Facts

Tomb Of Amenhotep II
The walls are painted terracotta and the mortuary texts are so drawn that they give the impression of papyrus texts pinned to the walls. There is not too much detail or use of colour and the effect is austere and dignified.

Amenhotep II Mummy
On each side of the tomb chamber are two rooms. Three mummies lay in the first to the right (3) and the nine royal mummies in the second (4). One of the mummies proved to be that of Queen Tiy; her hair was scientifically compared with that found in a symbolic coffin in the tomb of Tutankhamon, and found to be of the same type.
