This room is decorated of a  sketchy version of the Spell of theTwelve Caves of which it is historically the second representation (Hornung, 2007). This treaty is the chapter 168 of the Book of the Dead, considered to part by some authors.  Here I duplicated the planche II of the work of Murray (1904), corresponding to the west wall of this room. This planche is a partial view of the 11th cave. Every cave consists of a different number of divinities. The king is figured on the knees before every group of divinities to which he makes offering. One can recognize the name of Merenptah "Ram of Re, beloved of the gods", there.(Dessoudeix, 2008).  Murray gave a translation of the inscriptions of every cave represented in this room.
