|Location||Dra' Abu el-Naga', Theban Necropolis|
|Excavated by||Ghautier (ca 1908)|
The Theban Tomb TT18 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 Baki (or perhaps Bak), who was Chief Weigher of the Gold of Amun during the early Eighteenth Dynasty.
Baki's father was a scribe of counting of cattle of Queen Ahmose Nefertari. The hall of the tomb is decorated with scenes showing a banquet and offering brought before Baki and his family. Other scenes show Baki and his family fishing and fowling.
