Amenemopet (ancient Egyptian: ỉmn-m-ỉpt, "Amun is in the Luxor Temple") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Amenemopet was the son of Pharaoh Amenhotep II.[1] The identity of his mother remains unknown. He was a (half-)brother of Pharaoh Thutmose IV.

Attestation[]

Amenemopet is known from the so-called Stela C, found in the Sphinx temple of Amenhotep II. He is identified as a son of this pharaoh based on the stela, which is stylistically datable to the reign of Amenhotep II.[2] It is possible that he is the same as the Prince Amenemopet shown on the stela of the Royal Wet Nurse Senetruyu.[1]

Burial[]

Amenemopet's tomb and mummy remain unknown.
