Mrs. Naunakhte & Family

This chapter focuses on Naunakhte's son, Qenhirkhopshef the Younger, who received a larger share of her mother's inheritance in the form of a copper vessel and ten additional sacks of grain. It begins with some facts about Qenhirkhopshef: he was a regular workman, but some of the correspondence with his brother Maaninakhtef suggests that he also worked as a carpenter, perhaps as part of a family business. It then considers one ostracon (O. BM EA 50737) from Dynasty 20, which mentions both Qenhirkhopshef and his sister Khatanub; Naunakhte's daughters sometimes appear in the records buying carpentry. It also describes Qenhirkhopshef the Younger as one who seems to have been more versatile than other workmen. Finally, it analyzes one of Qenhirkhopshef's stelae, found in a Theban tomb and then acquired by the Earl of Belmore. The tomb has come to be known as Lord Belmore's Tomb.
