Ankhefenmut (transliteration: ꜥnḫ-f-n-ỉmn, meaning: "He lives for Amun") was an ancient Egyptian prince of the Twenty-first Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Family[]

Ankhefenamun was a son of the High Priest of Amun Herihor, who was the de facto ruler of Upper Egypt from 1076-1070 BCE. He is depicted second in Herihor's procession of sons at the temple of Khonsu at Karnak.[1] The identity of his mother remains unknown.
