Ramesses IX is one of the last Pharaohs of the 20th dynasty.

His tomb has three successive corridors that lead to a small room followed by a four-pillared hall and then a stairway that takes you down to the burial chamber. The burial chamber has a pit in the ground where the sarcophagusWhat does it mean?, now missing, was supposed to lie.

Like some other Pharaohs, the king's mummy was found in a cache at DeirWhat does it mean? El-Bahari temple.

The tomb is decorated using text from the Book of the DeadWhat does it mean?. Meanwhile it was hastily finished because the king died before the tomb's completion.
