Από το 1000 π.Χ. χρονολογείται ο τάφος που ανακαλύφθηκε στη δυτική όχθη του Λούξορ

Έναν πολύ καλά διατηρημένο φαραωνικό τάφο, ο οποίος ανήκει στο χρυσοχόο Αμενενχάτ της 18ης Δυναστείας και χρονολογείται από το 1.000 π.Χ., ανακάλυψε η αιγυπτιακή αρχαιολογική αποστολή του Μουστάφα Ουαζίρι Λούξορ.

Όπως μεταδίδει η "Αλ Αχράμ", στο εσωτερικό του τάφου, σε βάθος επτά μέτρων βρέθηκε άγαλμα που εικονίζει τον χρυσοχόο Αμενενχάτ καθιστό σε ψηλή καρέκλα, δίπλα από τη γυναίκα του που φοράει μακρύ φόρεμα, ενώ στα πόδια τους βρίσκεται ένας από τους γιους τους.

Οι τοιχογραφίες που βρέθηκαν στον χώρο έχουν διατηρήσει τα χρώματα τους, ενώ το ίδιο συνέβη με τα κτερίσματα και τα πήλινα αγγεία. Σε καλή κατάσταση, στον ίδιο χώρο, βρέθηκαν επίσης μούμιες που χρονολογούνται από τον 10ο και 110 προ Χριστού αιώνα.
