(p.211) 16 Two Scribes Called Amunnakhte
Mrs. Naunakhte & Family

This chapter focuses on two scribes, both named Amunnakhte; one is the son of Khaemnun and Naunakhte, the other the son of Ipuy. It first considers O. DeM 225 from early Dynasty 20, which shows Amunnakhte the son of Khaemnun and Naunakhte being commissioned by a Mrs. Iy to manufacture a coffin. It then examines the letters that Amunnakhte and Maaninakhtef wrote each other, including one in which he urges the latter to take care of their business. It also analyzes P. DeM 4–6, believed to have been written by three different scribes, and concludes with a discussion of P. Vienna KM 3925 verso, the writing of which is somehow slightly reminiscent of Amunnakhte son of Ipuy, but which also mentions the scribe Amunmose who brought something to a number of men and women, among them Amunnakhte son of Khaemnun and Naunakhte.
