Kampp 161 is an ancient Egyptian tomb located in the Dra' Abu el-Naga' necropolis in Thebes, one of Egypt's ancient capitals. If compared with similar tombs in the region based on style and architecture, it would probably date back to the reigns of Amenhotep II or Thutmose IV of the Eighteenth Dynasty.[1]

The tomb was registered as "Kampp 161" by Friederike Kampp-Seyfried in the 1990s. On December 9, 2017, the Ministry of State of Antiquities announced that the tomb, along with Kampp 150, was excavated by a team of Egyptian archeologists. A mural depiction of an event, possibly a banquet for the deceased occupants, was found on the western wall of the tomb. A decorated coffin and wooden funerary masks were also found.[1]
