Abstract

Object of the paper is the lid of the coffin and the cartonnage of the musician of Amun Tentamunnesuttaui (Firenze, Museo Egizio, inv. no. 2176 and 2173). They were part of the intact assemblage of the woman, including her mummy, found during Ippolito Rosellini’s excavations at Thebes in an intact tomb – as he says -, and probably damaged during the sea travel from Alexandria to Italy. Both can be dated on the ground of internal iconographic and textual evidence to Dynasty 22. Her father, Hormes, was a priest and scribe of the army of the domain of Amun, probably an ancestor of Hormes, generalissimo of the army of the domain of Amun at the end of Dynasty 22, and owner of TT 126 at Sheikh Abd el-Gurna.
