Counter of Grain or Grain Accountant was an ancient Egyptian occupational title. Grain counters were trained Scribes and served under supervision of the Overseer of the Fields by inspecting the farmers, recording the measurements of the fields and keeping a register of the yearly crop yield. They also reported to the Overseer of the Granary, who supervised the storing of the threshed grain in a specific palace or temple domain. Nebamun is one of the best known Grain Counters thanks to the beautiful scenery on the wall reliefs from his tombs.
