|Thebes Tomb TT81|
The wall of his tomb reads::
- I reached old age of an honored man,
- While I was daily in the favour of his Majesty.
- I was fed from the table of the king,
- With bread from the royal repast,
- And beer likewise,
- And fat meat, various vegetables and fruits,
- Honey, cakes, wine and oil.
