Amenemhat (transliteration: ỉmn-m-ḥt, meaning: "Amun is in Front") was High Priest of Amun under Pharaoh Amenhotep II of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Amenemhat was the son of a Wab Priest and the Overseer of the sandal makers of Amun, named Djehutyhotep.

Attestation[]

Amenemhat is attested by several funerary cones now exhibited at the University College, London (UC 37551)[1] and in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York;[2] he also left an inscription outlining his career at Gebel el-Silsila.[3]

Burial[]

Amenemhat was probably buried in the TT97 rock-cut tomb at Sheikh Abd el-Qurna. The tomb includes the coffin of a royal sandal-maker named Tju,[4] likely a close relative.
