Isetemakhbit or Isetemkheb (transliteration: ꜣst-m-ꜣḫ-bỉt, meaning: "Isis is in Panopolis") was an ancient Egyptian noblewoman of the Twenty-first Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Family[]

Isetemakhbit was the Chief of the Harem of Amun-Re, married to the High Priest of Amun, Pinedjem I. None of Pinedjem I's children are known to have been hers. However, she was probably the mother of Pinedjem's successor as High Priest, Masaharta, who named his daughter Isetemakhbit. She may also have been the mother of Nespaneferher, whose mother remains unknown.

Burial[]

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