Panehesy (ancient Egyptian: pꜣ-nḥsy, "The Nubian")[1][2] was Vizier under the reign of Merenptah of the Nineteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

A letter was written to him by Qenherkhepeshef upon the back of the Papyrus Chester Beatty 3 reading:

The Scribe Qenherkhepeshef of the Great Tomb of Baenre beloved of Amun, Son of the sun-god: Merenptah satisfied with Truth in the Estate of Amun, greets his lord, the Fanbearer on the King's Right Hand, the Lord Vizier of Upper and Lower Egypt, Panehesy. In life, prosperity, health![3]
