Theban Tomb 81 (TT81) is the rock-cut tomb located at the necropolis Sheikh Abd el-Qurna. It belonged to Ineni, the Overseer of the Granary and Overseer of the Works.

The wall of his tomb reads:[1]

I reached old age of an honored man,
While I was daily in the favour of his Majesty.
I was fed from the table of the king,
With bread from the royal repast,
And beer likewise,
And fat meat, various vegetables and fruits,
Honey, cakes, wine and oil.
