Djehuty's Tomb at Luxor Reveals More

There has been more finds in the tomb of Djehuty at Luxor including a 17th dynasty child's sarcophagus and a collection of crude wooden shabti figurines dated to the 18th dynasty belonging to a priest. This find is just the latest since the tombs discovery in 2003 in the Dra Abu el Naga necropolis.

Djehuty lived during the reigns of Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III, (1472-1425 BC), as recorded on the walls of his tomb. The tomb contained artifacts from many periods including a sketch on a wall from the tombs use probably during the Greco-Roman era.
