Djekhy & Son

Koenraad Donker van Heel

American University in Cairo Press

Djekhy and his son Iturech were funerary priests who were paid to bring offerings to the dead. Today we would call them funerary service providers. They appear to have been prominent figures in the Theban choachytes' scene of the sixth century BCE. The personal and business archive of Djekhy & Son was found as part of a cache of documents related to the Theban choachytes, the earliest of which date as far back as 675 BCE, generations before Djekhy's time.

Keywords:   Djekhy, Djedkhonsuiufankh, Iturech, funerary priest, Thebes, 550 BCE, family, Papyrus Mattha, The House of the Cow
