The Theban Tomb TT67 is located in Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, part of the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to Luxor. It is the burial place of the Ancient Egyptian official, Hapuseneb, who was High Priest of Amun during the reign of Hatshepsut.[1]

In the passage of the tomb hapuseneb's parents are mentioned. His father Hepu was Third lector of Amun. His mother was called Ahhotep. Hapuseneb's wife Amenhotep is known from inscriptions in Gebel el-Silsila,[1] but she is not mentioned in his tomb.[2]
