Tomb of Ramesses IX

The quality of the work in the tomb shows that the tomb was finished hastily after Ramesses IX's death -- the later work is much simpler and more crude than the early work.

Corridor with steps on etiher side to a true corridor with two annexes (one never completed), followed by a second and third corridot and bestibule. There is no ritual shaft A four-pillard hall leads ato a short corridot and the burial chamber, which has no annexes. It is possible the burial chamber was meant to be another corridor, and only converted when the king died.

The actual mummy of Ramesses IX was found in the 1881 Dier-el-Bahari cache, in a coffin originally prepared for Neskhons, the wife of Pinudjem II.
