TT40, the tomb of AMENHOTEP, surnamed HUY

TT40, the tomb of AMENHOTEP, surnamed HUY



In the name of the King (perhaps too young to make the decree), Huy was officially appointed to his position by "The Overseer of the treasury’" who remains anonymous, but was probably Meryre or Maya. The inscription states: "The Overseer of the Treasury, says, ‘Thus speaks Pharaoh, ‘There is handed over to you [devolved land management] from Nekheb to Neswet-tawy", a vast territory ranging from Elkab until the fourth cataract of the Nile!
Opposite him, Huy, carrying a fan, replies: "May Amon, lord of Neswet-tawy do according to all that you have commanded(?), O Sovereign my lord".
Huy is accompanied by bowing courtiers, a scene which would not have been out of place in a tomb at Amarna, who state: "The courtiers who are in the palace say: ‘You are the son of Amon, O Nebkheperurê! May he cause the chiefs of all lands to come to you with the choicest and best of their lands".
