Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Amenemhat


13th Dynasty

Amenemhat's title, 'Overseer of the Storeroom of the Chamber of Fruits', does not sound especially elevated, particularly from a society which devised many complex and orotund dignities for its officers. Amenemhat honored one Beb, described as a prince, and refers to Henu, who may have been Amenemhat's superior, on the funerary obelisk which he had prepared for himself. The adoption of an obelisk by a private person at this time was very unusual.
