The rock-cut Tomb of Zed-Amun-ef-ankh is a fascinating glimpse of Bahariya in its heyday. It appears that Zed-Amun-ef-ankh was not a government official but was given the richness of colourful tomb paintings anyway, hinting at his wealth and importance. Researchers assume he was a trader, perhaps a wine merchant or landowner making money out of Bahariya’s thriving wine-export business.
