Meryatum or Meriatum (ancient Egyptian: tm-mry, "Beloved of Atum") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Twentieth Dynasty during the New Kingdom. He was a son of Pharaoh Ramesses III, most likely named after Meryatum, one of the numerous sons of Ramesses II, who was also a High Priest of Ra.

Attestations[]

Meryatum is attested seventh in Ramesses III's procession of princes at Medinet Habu,[1] which is inscribed by Ramesses VI and not necessarily in birth order. Meryatum lived at least into the reign of Ramesses V since he is mentioned in the Wilbour Papyrus.[2]

Burial[]

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