The necropolis of Dra' Abu el-Naga' is located opposite to the modern city of Luxor in Upper Egypt on the Western side of the Nile,  just by the entrance of the dry bay that leads up to Deir el-Bahri, and north of the necropolis of el-Assasif.


It was probably used as a royal Necropolis for the kings of the Seventeenth Dynasty, and contains the possible tomb of Amenhotep I, Tomb ANB. It was also used as a cemetery for officials of the New Kingdom administration in Thebes.


During Coptic times, a monastery, Deir el-Bachit was built on the hilltop above the pharaonic cemetery It contains Tomb of Roy & Tomb of Shuroy


Tomb of Shuroy


The Ancient Egyptian Shuroy lived during the 20th Dynasty. He was buried in a tomb in the necropolis of Dra' Abu el-Naga' on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes.His titles included Head of Brazier-bearers of Amun.


Tomb of Roy


The tomb belonged to Roy, a royal scribe and steward in the estates of king Horemheb and the Temple of Amen, and to his wife Nebtawy. It dates to late Dynasty 18-early Dynasty 19. The decoration treats with Roy’s funeral in an informal style that is more reminiscent of rapidly-drawn sketches than the idealized and formal funerary style of, say, Ramose’s tomb.
