The Treasure of Ahhotep

The tomb of Queen Ahhotep, wife of King Seqnenre-Taa and mother of King Ahmose the First, was discovered nearly intact in AD 1859 in Dra Abu el-Naga at Thebes.

The gilded coffin contained the decayed mummy of the queen and many pieces of jewelry and weapons. These artifacts consisted of bracelets, collars, pendants, a necklace, a ceremonial axe, and dagger, as well as two model barks of silver and gold.

As the mother of King Kamose and King Ahmose, Queen Ahhotep received these splendid artifacts after the country was liberated from the Hyksos because of her bravery and support for her late husband and her two sons.
