Notes:
(Tomb TT 56) This is a classic T-shaped tomb with transverse and axial corridors containing the engaged statues of the deceased and spouse as the focal point. It is located in the area of the Theban necropolis called the necropolis of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna. Userhat held various titles during the reign of Amenhotep II (Amenophis II, reigned 1450-1425 BCE) of 18th Dynasty. "In private tombs the owner is often shown hunting on foot with a bow. From the mid-18th Dynasty onwards archery was also practised from chariots as in the scene on the painted box of Tutankhamun (Cairo, Egyptian Museum), the bull hunt of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu or the scene in the Theban tomb of Userhat.
