Ancient Egyptian tomb lost for decades rediscovered in Luxor

Tomb number TT 209 in Assasif area on Luxor's West Bank was rediscovered yesterday by Spanish excavators

Nevine El-Aref , Saturday 14 Jun 2014

Minister of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim has explained the context behind a tomb recently rediscovered in Luxor by a Spanish archaeological mission.

The tomb was first discovered in 1904 by Sir Robert Mond, but Mond didn’t describe the tomb's architectural style or identify its occupant. The tomb was then abandoned and became buried beneath the sands. Egyptologists looked for it subsequently, but their efforts failed.

"It is a very mysterious tomb," asserted Ibrahim, adding that the name of the tomb had changed several times since being mentioned in A Topographical Catalogue of the Private Tombs of Thebes, by Alan Gardiner and Arthur Weigall, published in 1913.

The occupant was first known as “Hatashemro.” Then in the 1950s, he was mentioned as “Seremhatrekhyt.” Later studies revealed that Seremhatrekhyt was a title and not the occupant's name.

During the 1980s, the tomb was buried under the sands and not found until the Spanish mission of Laguna University, directed by Miguel Molinero Polo, rediscovered it.

Recent preliminary studies show that the tomb dates to the 25th Dynasty and belonged to a person called “As-m-ra Ashemro.”

Ibrahim described the rediscovery as being of great importance because it adds a new name to ancient Egyptian history as well as revealing more about the 25th Dynasty.

Polo said that ongoing study of the tomb will reveal the different titles of the tomb's occupant as well as a comprehensive plan of the architecture of the tomb.
