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


12th Dynasty

Sehetepibre' was an official of the late 12th Dynasty, probably in service to Senwosret III (878-1841? B.C.) and Amenemhet III (1844-1797 B.C.) as treasurer. He is well known for his Loyalist Instructions, in which he advised the Egyptians of his era to obey the king in all things, behavior which could attain a person a higher office. A copy of this text was found on an Abydos stela and in other documents.
