Griffith Institute Squeezes made in Theban tomb TT 57, of the Overseer of Granaries of Upper and Lower Egypt, Khaemhet, of the reign of Amenophis III (1391-1353 BC)

"Although the tomb of Khaemhet has been re-recorded in modern times, V. Loret''s incomplete publication in Mémoires publiés par les membres de la Mission Archéologique Française au Caire i (1889), 113-32 pls. i-iv has not yet been superseded. The squeezes presented here almost certainly show details which can no longer be seen in the tomb. All the descriptions and the plan have been taken from B. Porter, R. L. B. Moss and E. W. Burney, Topographical Bibliography of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts, Reliefs, and Paintings, i Part 1 (Oxford, 1960).Squeezes 4.1-68D were made, or were acquired, by the Revd. Henry Stobart (1824-1895) in Egypt in 1854-5. Squeezes 1.1-15 were made by an unknown person in the 1880s or 1890s"
