|Amenhotep called Huy
The Theban Tomb TT40 is located in Qurnet Murai, part of the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to Luxor. It is the burial place of the Ancient Egyptian Viceroy of Kush named Amenhotep called Huy, who lived during the end of the 18th during the reign of Tutankhamen.
Huy was the son of a lady named Werner. His father is not known. Huy was married to Taemwadjsy, chief of the harem of Amun and of the Harem of Nebkheperure (Tutankhamun). They had a son named Paser.
In the tomb there is reference to a Temple named "Satisfying the Gods" in Nubia. Huy is shown being greeted there by Khay, High Priest of Nebkehperure (Tutankhamen), Penne, Deputy of the fortress of Nebkheperure (Tutankhamen), Huy, the Mayor, and Mermose, (his brother) the second prophet of Nebkheperure. Taemwadjsy was Chief of the Harem of Nebkheperure (Chief of the female attendants of the temple) at this temple. A complete and detailed description of the tomb is given on Osirisnet (see External Links).
