The Theban Tomb TT64 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 Hekerneheh who was a King's Tutor of Prince Amenhotep during the reign of Tuthmosis IV and lived into the reign of Amenhotep III in the Eighteenth Dynasty.[1][2]

Hekerneheh is shown with the King's son Amenhotep (who would later become Amenhotep III). Behind Hekerneheh six royal princes are shown. One of them is a prince Amenemhat, who was a son of Tuthmosis IV and whose canopic jars were found in his father's tomb KV43.[1]
