Priest of Ma'at or Judge (ancient Egyptian: ḥmt-nṯr-mꜣꜥt) was an ancient Egyptian occupational title held by high officials. Though technically priests, they practised a secular profession according to modern standards. In the ancient Egyptian court system there was a lower court and a high court. The lower court was made up of Priests of Ma'at in each city or town. The supreme high court judge was the Pharaoh, who mostly assigned a Vizier or another Royal Sealbearer to act on his behalf.
