The tomb is located in the necropolis of Qarat Qasr Salim, near the city of El Bawiti, in El Bahariya Oasis. This lavish tomb belongs to Djedamun-Ef-Ankh's son, Bannentiu. Both were wealthy powerful merchants and landowners of the Twenty-sixth Dynasty in the time of Nebuchadnezzar. This tomb is even larger and more ornately decorated than that of the father. The tomb comprises a hall with four pillars and three side chambers. In rich colors, scenes of many Egyptian deities such as Horus, Anubis, Amoun, and Ra were found. It was found painted in the yellows and reds of the sandstone found in the oasis. What is most interesting in the tomb is the depiction of the God of Justice cheating on the scales of judgment.
