Mahu's tomb is Amarna Tomb 9 of the Tombs of the Nobles at Amarna. In the tomb Mahu is shown being rewarded by king Akhenaten. He is shown inspecting the defences of the city with the king and queen. The vizier and other officials are also present. In another scene Mahu is shown in his work policing the city, and is shown in a meeting with the vizier (probably Nakhtpaaten) and a lesser official named Heqanefer. [1]
