Djehuty (transliteration: ḏḥty, meaning: "Thoth") was High Priest of Amun under Pharaoh Ahmose II of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom. He was the earliest known, and possibly the first, High Priest of Amun.

Attestation[]

Djehuty is known from a small number of funerary cones at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The cone is inscribed for "The First Prophet of Amun and Overseer of sealers, Djehuty." The funerary cones make mention of "The good God Neb-pehty-Re" (Ahmose).[1] On some of the funerary cones Ahmose bears the throne name Heqatawy, that is not often attested for the king.[2]

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Djehuty's tomb and mummy remain unknown.
