KV9

   The tomb of Ramesses VI of Dynasty 20 in the Valley of the Kings. It was known as the tomb of Memnon and has stood open since antiquity. It was seen by traveler Richard Pococke during his visit to the valley in 1738. It was cleared by James Burton in the 1820s and Georges Daressy in 1888 and later examined by Edwin Brock beginning in 1985. The first chambers are inscribed for Ramesses V, and it is probable that the tomb was originally intended for him and usurped by his successor. It is unlikely that a double burial was intended. The mummies of both kings were found in the royal cache in KV35. The head of a sarcophagus lid found there is now housed in the British Museum.
