Padinemty (transliteration: pꜣ-dỉ-nmty, meaning: "The Gift of Nemty") is an ancient Egyptian non-dynastic local Pharaoh during the Third Intermediate Period. Padinemty is merely known from fragments of his Book of the Dead, reported to have come from Asyut (ancient Lycopolis).[1] Hence, he possibly ruled from Lycopolis over a significant territory in Upper Egypt. Alternatively, Padinemty has been suggested to have ruled at Hermopolis instead.[2]

Padinemty may have attained local power after the collapse of the more centralized 23rd Dynasty in Upper Egypt. Furthermore, he certainly ruled prior to the 26th Dynasty, placing his reign sometime between Piye's conquest of Egypt and the Assyrian invasion under Esarhaddon and then Ashurbanipal in 666 BC.[1]
