Tomb KV61 is an unused tomb discovered in Egypt's Valley of the Kings. At discovery, it was apparently unused and undecorated, thus its intended owner is unknown. If used, it appears the burial was later moved in its entirety to another location. KV61 is an abbreviation for the Valley of the Kings, followed by a number to designate individual tombs in the Valley.
