Tomb WV25 in the West Valley of the Valley of the Kings, Egypt, is clearly the beginnings of a Royal Tomb, but was never finished or decorated. It is thought to be the start of Akhenaten's Theban Tomb.
It was discovered by Giovanni Battista Belzoni in 1817. Belzoni found two sets of four third intermediate coffins containing mummies, one coffin was covered in a pall.
