Restoration

In 2009, the reliefs from the tomb were protected by a mudbrick casing erected in front of them. Horemheb's south wall, which at the same time serves as the north wall of the tomb of Khay, was consolidated with new mudbrick masonry to a consistent height. The parabolic arch over the shaft reused by Khay was reconstructed, following the line of the original. To allow the excavation of the shaft, a steel lintel supporting half of the thickness of the wall was installed over the shaft. The edge of the shaft and the steps leading down to it were also reinforced, using new blocks of limestone.
