Djedmutiuesankh (transliteration: ḏd-mwt-ỉw-s-ꜥnḫ, meaning: "Mut Speaks and She Lives") was an ancient Egyptian noble woman of the Twenty-first Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Family[]

Djedmutiuesankh held the prominent position of Chief of the Harem of Amun-Re, which indicates that her husband was a High Priest of Amun, probably Djedkhonsiuefankh.[1] If true, this would make a certain "[...]re", son of the HPA Djedkhonsiuefankh,[2] their probable son.

Burial[]

Djedmutiuesankh was buried with several other high ranking individuals of the priesthood of Amun in the MMA 60 rock-cut tomb at Deir el-Bahari, which forms part of the greater Theban Necropolis.[3]
