The Tomb of Merya II is the royal sepulchre of the Ancient Egyptian noble Meryre II. Known as Amarna Tomb 2, it is located in the northern side of the wadi that splits the cluster of tombs known collectively as the Northern tombs, near to the city of Amarna, in Egypt.[1] The tomb is largely destroyed. It was decorated with the last dated appearance of Akhenaten and the Amarna family, dating from the second month, year 12 of his reign.[2]
