Djedmut (transliteration: ḏd-mwt, meaning: "Mut has Spoken") was an ancient Egyptian chantress of the Twenty-second Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Djedmut is known from her outer sarcophagus, which attests her with the title "Chantress of Amun-Re at Karnak". The coffin is held at the Vatican Museums and dates to the beginning of the 22nd Dynasty. Her inner coffin is recently discovered in the Museum of Rochelle in France.[1]

Burial[]

Given her position in the Theban priesthood of Amun, Djedmut was probably interred somewhere at the Theban Necropolis. Her mummy is lost.
