Bearers of offerings in Ramose's tomb at Luxor.’
A relief in Ramose's tomb shows bearers of offerings such as lotus flowers, waterfowl and bowls with figs, pomegranates and a pointed bread.
Ramose was an 18th dynasty 'Governor of the Town' (of Thebes) and Vizier during the transition of the reigns of Amenhotep III and Echnaton. His tomb (TT 55) is located in the Sheikh Abd el Qurnah Necropolis on the Westbank at Luxor and is one of the socalled "Tombs of the Nobles". It is uncertain whether he was ever buried in this tomb or that he followed Echnaton to his new capital near Amarna and was buried there. Photo Mick Palarczyk and Paul Smit.
