Abstract

Among the coffins not on display in the Egyptian Museum in Florence, one is the case of a black anthropoid coffin, belonging to the well-known type dating to the 18th dynasty, inscribed for a Qenamon (inv. no. 9477). The presence of the title it-nTr, not followed by any divine name, in association with the name Qenamon, and the features of the Florence coffin, well fitting coffins evolution from Amenhotep II to Amenhotep III, strongly suggest to connect it to the funerary equipment of the owner of TT 93, Qenamon, who lived under Amenhotep II. The relative poorness of the case prevents from accepting this identification as sure, but very probably the once powerful personality ended his life in disgrace, as some aspects of his damnatio memoriae in the tomb, well beyond the usual limits of Amarna destructions, suggest.
