Ancient Egypt Wiki

Royal Scribe (ancient Egyptian: sš-nsw) or Scribe of the King's Altar was an ancient Egyptian occupational title. The titleholders were trained Scribes and served at the palace inside a royal domain as accountants or record keepers. They kept register of various things such as visitors, products, offerings and tribute to the king.

Royal Scribe

Princes often held this position under the reign of their father, probably since this allowed them to stay close to their family members who also lived in the palace.
