Sheikh Abd el-Qurna ( Western Thebes )

The main private cementary in the center of the Theban necropolis (25o44'N, 32o36'E). The term Qurna seems to be  a derivation of of el-Qurn (the peak), which may refer to the mountain that is 482 meters above sea level, overlooking the Theban necropolis. Qurna is the central part of the New Kingdom private necropolis in Thebes. It consists of the hill proper and the plain east of it, which is  defined as the area southwest of Khokha and north of the mortuary temple of Ramesses II (the Ramesseum). In the hillside and the plain, there are far more then 150 decorated tombs, more than half of which date to the XVIIIth dynasty, other dated XIXth and early XXth dynasty or to the Saite period (XXVI Dynasty). The most important tombs are: TT100 - Rekhmire, TT96 Sennefer, TT52 - Nakht, TT69 - Menna, TT55 - Ramose, and other.
