Ahmose-Pennekhbet ("Born of the Moon, He of Nekhbet") was an ancient Egyptian high official of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Biography[]

Ahmose-Pennekhbet started his career under Ahmose II and served all the pharaohs until Thutmose III. His autobiographical inscriptions are important for the understanding of the history of the early New Kingdom, though less detailed than those of his contemporary Ahmose-Siebana.

Under Ahmose I he fought in Northern Canaan, he followed Amenhotep I to Nubia, accompanied Thutmose I to Naharin, and campaigned with Thutmose II in Sinai.

He held many offices and titles such as Royal Sealbearer, Chief Treasurer and Royal Herald. His autobiography ends with the assertion that he had been the Royal Tutor of Princess Neferure, the eldest daughter of Hatshepsut.

Burial[]

Ahmose-Pennekhbet was eventually buried in his EK2 rock-cut tomb at the necropolis of his hometown Eileithyiaspolis (modern El Kab).
