The Theban Tomb TT168 is located in Dra' Abu el-Naga', part of the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to Luxor. It is the burial place of the Ancient Egyptian Any (or Anuy) who was a God's Father of Amun and a Chosen lector of the Lord of the Gods during the reign of Ramesses II in the Nineteenth Dynasty. [1] [2]

The inner room of the tomb contains remains of painted scenes, and a text appears on the frieze. Any (or Anuy) appears with his wife Mery(t)nub, who is a chantress of Amun in Karnak.[1][2]
