Horemheb was the "General of Generals of the Army" during the reigns of Tutankhamun and Ay. He ordered the works of his tomb before he occupied the throne as a Pharaoh after the death of King Ay. discovered in 1975, the Tomb of King Horemheb is located in the section of the Pyramid of Unas, in the Necropolis of Saqqara. It was not used, as Horemheb made another tomb in the Valley of the Kings, Tomb KV 57 in Luxor. Flanked by pillars, the entrance to the tomb is preceded by a paved forecourt. It leads into the first colonnaded court, which was surrounded by a wall 10ft/3m high. At the northwest corner of the court is a tomb shaft. Beyond the court is a hall comprising statues of Horemheb and Anubis (god of mummification).
There are representations of Horemheb at the offering table at the entrance. The tomb contains paintings and reliefs, both raised and sunk, depicting the career of Horemheb in the army. They manifest the finest examples of the art of Memphis under the influence of the Amarna style at this era. In a celebrated relief, there is a presentation of a gold collar of honor by the King and Queen. On the door jambs are the name and titles of the dead man. Walls are decorated with painted skillfully-carved reliefs and scenes depicting Horemheb before Osiris and a procession of offering bearers. The King is also shown receiving representatives and prisoners from foreign lands. There is a statue of Horemheb and his wife in a chapel, on the west side of the court.
