Thebes, Karakhamun (TT 223), and Karabasken (TT 391) in the Twenty-fifth Dynasty


This volume is the first joint publication of the members of the American–Egyptian mission South Asasif Conservation Project, working under the auspices of the State Ministry for Antiquities and Supreme Council of Antiquities, and directed by the editor.
