Siptah (ancient Egyptian: zꜣ-ptḥ, "Son of Ptah") or Ramesses-Siptah was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Nineteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Siptah was a son of Pharaoh Ramesses II and the 26th son in the procession of princes.[1] A relief in the Louvre Museum (E 26901) pairs his name together with the name of his mother, Sutererey.[2][3] However, the relief may refer to Pharaoh Siptah instead, in which case Sutererey is not this Siptah's mother.

Further Attestations[]

A Book of the Dead, which was probably his, is now in Florence.[citation needed]

Burial[]

Siptah likely predeceased his father and was presumably buried in KV5, a large rock-cut tomb built for the sons of Ramesses II in the Valley of the Kings.
