Siatum (ancient Egyptian: zꜣ-ỉtm, "Son of Atum") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Siatum was likely the son of Pharaoh Thutmose IV.[1] Siatum's name corresponds to part of Thutmose's Horus name. The identity of his mother remains unknown. He was a (half-)brother of Pharaoh Amenhotep III.

Attestation[]

Siatum is known from two sources; a mummy-label found on the mummy of his daughter Nebetia, where he is mentioned as her father, and a relief at Saqqara, which depicts prince Siatum seated on the lap of his tutor Meryre. The relief stylisticly dates to Amenhotep's reign.[citation needed]

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Siatum's tomb and mummy remain unknown.
