Tomb of Tawsert and Sethnakht

Queen Tawosret (Tawsert) was the Chief Wife of Seti II (of the Nineteenth Dynasty) and her tomb KV14 is located next to that of her husband in the Valley of the Kings, in the Western Bank of Luxor. The tomb is currently open to visitors. Earlier in the Twentieth Dynasty, the tomb was usurped by King Sethnakht who covered the images of Tawosret with plaster over which he painted his own names. Entering the tomb through the entrance, one finds three corridors, the walls of which are decorated with scenes involving relief of the figure of Seti II, the Solar Disc, the scarab, texts from the ‘Book of the Dead’, Depictions of Osiris, Anubis, Ma’at, Hathor, Isis, Re-Horakhty, and an Iun-Mutef priest with the Four Sons of Horus. A staircase descends through the next room, also decorated with Underworld guardians from the ‘Book of the Dead’, and leads to another series of corridors, decorated with the ‘Opening of the Mouth Ritual’. Here, Anubis is shown tending a mummy on the mummification bed flanked by Isis and Nephthys. The Burial Chamber of Queen Tawosret is of a rectangular plan with eight square pillars decorated with reliefs of numerous gods and goddesses. The chamber’s ceiling is decorated with fine astronomical patterns and the walls are ornamented with scenes of the Underworld and others from a number of the Books of the Hereafter, including: the Book of Gates, Book of Earth, and Book of the Caverns. At this chamber, the huge red granite sarcophagus of Sethnakht was found reclining mummiform image of the king on its lid. Sethnakht’s mummy was found in KV35 with the royal mummy cache.
