Relief from tomb of Horemheb 

Horemheb was one of the most powerful men during the reign of Tutankhamun. He was named ‘deputy of the King’, as general of the army. Before he became Pharaoh in 1320 BC he had began his private tomb but left this when he was allowed a tomb in the Valley of the Kings. His tomb in Saqqara was found in the 19th century but then forgotten again, only to be rediscovered in 1975. 

In the scene shown Horemheb is being honoured with golden necklaces, he is standing in the presence of the King and Queen. The ureaus on his forehead has been added after he became Pharaoh. 

Found in Saqqara, Egypt 

New Kingdom, 18th/19th dynasty, 1330 BC.
