Tomb of Ramose (found in 1986)

View over the tomb of RamoseThe Troop-commander and Deputy of the Army Ramose is mentioned in the adjacent tomb of Horemheb . He is there represented behind the chair of his superior and must have been an assistant of the general. Doubtless, he owed the privilege to be buried next to his master to this trusted position. Ramose appears to have died childless: his funerary rites were performed by his brother Tjay instead of by the expected eldest son. Otherwise, nothing is known of this army officer who must have lived during the end of the 18th Dynasty . His tomb was plundered in antiquity, then revisited by art robbers in the 19th century who sold the stela to the Berlin Museum. Ramose's monument was rediscovered and fully excavated in 1986.
