Painting of King Horemheb in the Tomb of Horemheb

Detail of a painting in the Tomb of Horemheb, KV57 in the Valley of the Kings at Thebes. King Horemheb was the last king of the Eighteenth Dynasty. During the reign of Tutankhamun, he was the commander of the army and started to build a tomb in Saqqara. Later, when Horemheb became king, he made for himself this beautiful tomb in the Valley of the Kings. This detail of its decoration shows the King offering wine in nu-vessels to the goddess Hathor (not shown here). The king is wearing the nemes headdress, a collar and bracelets.
