This work brings together all the surviving data from the Saqqara tomb of the Overseer of Craftsmen and Chief of Goldsmiths, Amenemone. As well as recovering further material, the rediscovery and excavation of the tomb has made it possible to identify the original location of the blocks from the chapel now housed in various museums. Amenemone was a contemporary of the general (and later king) Horemheb and the treasurer Maya and with them also served Tutankhamun; he can plausibly be identified as the leading artisan behind the production of some, at least, of the treasures of Tutankhamun.
