Chapter Summary

Painted tombs belonging to anonymous individuals in the Theban necropolis respond well to this type of stylistic analysis. Erasures of figures, names, and titles; later occupants; and environmental damage leave fragmentary evidence of careers, family relationships, and more important, the tomb owner's identity. One such monument is Theban Tomb 116, belonging to an unnamed Ḥзty-ˊ. Despite the publication of a few beautifully painted scenes, the tomb has never been excavated nor scientifically published. This chapter examines the available epigraphic, decorative, and stylistic evidence from the tomb to learn more information about the tomb's owner.

Keywords: Ḥзty-ˊ; Theban Tomb 116
