The Theban Tomb TT164 is located in Dra' Abu el-Naga', part of the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to Luxor.

TT164 is the burial place of the Ancient Egyptian Intef who was a scribe of recruits during the reign of Tuthmosis III in the Eighteenth Dynasty. [1] Intef's time as a scribe of recruits may have overlapped with that of Tjanuny (TT74). [2]

The tomb consists of a facade and a hall. Intef is depicted on the facade with a hymn. In the hall sons are shown bringing offerings to Intef and his wife. A stela with a hymn dedicated to Re-Harakhti was found. Intef is depicted spearing hippopotamus and in another scene he is shown fishing and fowling.[1]
