Ramesses-Setherwenemef (transliteration: rꜥ-ms-s stḫ-ḥr-wnm.f, meaning: "Re Fashioned Him, Set is with his Right Arm") was a Royal Butler under Ramesses IV of the Twentieth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Attestations[]

Ramesses-Setherwenemef made a visit to the site of Seti II's KV15 rock-cut tomb in the Valley of the Kings in a Year 6, probably of Ramesses IV.[1] He is last attested in Year 1 of Ramesses V.[2]

A stela from Thebes depicts Ramesses-Setherwenemef making offerings to Ptah, the Memphite creator god and patron of artists and craftsmen. The stela, which also bears the cartouches of Ramesses IV, is currently housed at the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam.

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Ramesses-Setherwenemef's tomb and mummy remain unknown.
