Ahmose (transliteration: ỉꜥḥ-ms, meaning: "Born of the Moon") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.[1]

Family[]

Part of an ushabti and fragments of a canopic jar found in his tomb record the names of the prince and his parents; Nebesu and Ian.[1] No king named Nebesu is known to this dynasty, therefore Ahmose's title of King's Son likely means King's Grandson instead. His connection to the royal family remains uncertain.

Burial[]

Ahmose is only known from his burial in the QV88 rock-cut tomb in the Valley of the Queens.[1]

Mummy[]

The mummy of a fetus, discovered in a wooden box inside the tomb, might be his. The fetus is currently on display in the QV55 tomb of Amunherkhepeshef.[1]
