, located in the necropolis
, is the tomb of Kharuef
, also called Senaa, who was Steward to the Great Royal Wife Tiye
, during the reign of Amenhotep III
. It is located in El-Assasif
, part of the Theban Necropolis
The tomb of Kharuef is large enough to have several later tombs associated with it, or placed within its substructure. The tombs, TT189, TT190, TT191, TT192, TT194, TT195, TT196
are all much smaller and largely undecorated.
The decoration in the tomb has depictions of Tiye, Amenhotep III (shown as a weak and elderly figure in some decoration) and Akhenaten
(named as Amenhotep, so the decoration dates to the earliest phase of his reign).
