From Daressy's Fouilles de la Vallee des Rois (1902.)
Victor Loret's discovery of KV35--the tomb
of Amenhotep II--on March 9'th, 1898, revealed another cache of
royal mummies to the world. But in addition to the bodies of ancient Egypt's royal dead,
Loret also found a number of antiquities, mostly in a fragmentary state,
scattered around the chambers of the tomb. Although in a damaged condition,
these objects constituted one of the largest collections of royal funerary
objects to be found in the Valley of the Kings up to that time. Overshadowed by
the more complete funerary ensembles of Maiherpri, Yuya and Tuyu, and finally
eclipsed completely by the dazzling (and intact)
treasures of Tutankhamen's tomb, the KV 35 objects are not well known today to the
In 1902, the Service des Antiquities de L'Egypte published
Georges Daressy's Catalogue General des Antiquites Egyptiennes du Musee du
Caire: Fouilles de la Vallee des Rois (click here to see
title page) which catalogued the antiquites discovered in KV 35 and provided
photographs of them. Very few of the photographic plates which appear in this
catalogue have been reproduced, and the work itself has been out of print for
years and is very difficult to find. The plates presented here were scanned from
the Smithsonian Institution's copy of Fouilles de la Vallee des Rois,
and I would like to thank them for allowing me to borrow and utilize this
valuable work for the Theban Royal Mummy Project. I also wish to thank
the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (especially the McKeesport branch) for their
aid in helping me obtain this rare book via interlibrary loan.
