Update from Osirisnet

Actually this tomb provided part of my art essay as it has a great example of mutilated heiroglyphics. You can visit it if you buy a ticket to the Assasif at the temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahri. You then wander out of the carpark towards a guardians hut set on a slight rise behind the tomb of Pabasa shouting hello. The guardians eventually hear and will then take you to the tomb. It has some quality carvings like Ramose but gets hardly any visitors. Well worth it.
