The Theban Tomb TT58 is located in Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, part of the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to Luxor.

The tomb was originally made for a courtier from the time of Amenhotep III during the 18th dynasty. In the hall there is still a scene with the original owner appearing before Amenhotep III and the goddesses (Hathor in one scene, Maat in another). The tomb was usurped during the 19th dynasty or 20th dynasty by a man named Amenhotep and his son Amenemone(t).[1]

Amenemone (the son) is a scribe of the Sacred Offerings of Amun, Temple Scribe of Mut, and Scribe in the Temple of Ramesses II, "Beloved like Amun". Amenemone is accompanied by his wife Henutanensu. Amenemone's father Amenhotep was an Overseer of the prophets of Amun. [2]
