Sitiah (transliteration: zꜢ.t-ỉꜤḥ, meaning: "Daughter of the Moon") was an ancient Egyptian Princess of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Burial and family[]

Sitiah was a daughter of an unidentified pharaoh. Her connection to the royal family is uncertain. She is only known from a single inscribed wooden tag which states "King's Daughter, Sitiah"[1] and was found in the KV64 rock-cut tomb in the Valley of the Kings. The remains of a female mummy found in KV64 might therefore be hers. However, since the tag was found in the original vertical entry shaft of the tomb, it might have fallen in from the nearby KV40 tomb or elsewhere.[1] No conclusions regarding her family relations can thus be made with certainty.

Princess Sitiah is definitely a seperate individual with regards to her namesake Queen Sitiah, since the latter is not of royal birth and therefore not attested with the title King's Daughter.
