On UC 14376 is mentioned the 'treasurer Bay' (imy-ra xtmt bay) who was an influential, rather enigmatic person in office towards the end of the 19th Dynasty. This object with his name might indicate that he had a chapel inside the mortuary temple of the king. Bay's tomb is in the Valley of the Kings.
