There are for sure still many to be found, alone on the Westbank in Luxor. Now, after the houses in Qurna and El-Tarif are gone.

In addition to the over 400 tombs listed in "Porter & Moss I-1. Private Tombs" (1970), Friederike Kampp gives in her book "Die Thebanische Nekropole" (1996) another 550, which, until then, had only been partially or not at all investigated.
