One day in the spring of 539 bce—between 6 March and 5 April—Iturech and a man called Hor son of Petiese and Mrs. Tayuau met, probably at the office of the scribe Nehemsukhonsu, along with eleven witnesses.The scribe Nehemsukhonsu (‘Khonsu has saved him’) is otherwise unknown. Egyptian scribes often added their title to their signature, but he did not. It is a shame, because a title often indicates whether someone worked for a specific temple or government office. Iturech, one of the stakeholders, signed the document in person. It was a special day for him: on this day Iturech bought Hor to be his son.
