The tomb of Khonsu, TT31, is one of the rare ones accessible to the public these days. Dating from the time of Ramesses II, it belongs to a character who was both, priest of Montu and priest of the cult of Thutmosis III.
The whole family of Khonsu seems to have had functions linked to Montu, at least since the time of a distant ancestor, Usermontu, a vizier of the time of Tutankhamun.
Osirisnet has the pleasure to present this tomb with complete photographic coverage, obtained before the addition of the protective glass panes, which, if they are necessary, nevertheless considerably reduce the appreciation of the different scenes and remove a large part of real-life emotion of the visit to the monument.
