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

Titles[]

The Luxor graffito attests Ankhefenmut with the titles of Overseer of the Cattle, Chief Steward of Amun, and Priest of Mut.[1]

Family[]

Ankhefenmut is a son of the High Priest of Amun Piankh and Nedjemet, Chief of the Harem of Amun-Re. The Luxor graffito dating to his brother Pinedjem I's pontificate as High Priest depicts Ankhefenmut and his brothers honoring their parents. Other brothers include; Heqanefer, the Second Prophet of Amun; and Heqamaat, a Sem Priest at Medinet Habu.[1] Herihor, who held the position of High Priest of Amun between Piankh and Pinedjem I, was likely another brother.[2] He also had a sister named Faienmut.[3]

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Ankhefenmut's tomb and mummy remain unknown, but given his position he was presumably buried somewhere at the Theban Necropolis.
