    Niankhkhnum & Khnumhotep - Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep lived some time during the 5th Dynasty Egypt. Both men had the same titles: 'Prophet of Ra in the Sun Temple of Niuserre', and ‘Head of the Manicurists of the Great House'. Their joint tomb is sometimes called the 'Tomb of the Hairdressers'. The two men are frequently depicted together in the tomb, sometimes in close embrace - a depiction normally only used for husbands and wives. Scholarship is divided on the exact nature of their relationship. The first recorded gay couple in history? The inscription in their tomb, translates as “joined in life and joined in death”.
