The tomb of an 18th-dynasty field scribe in the Theban Necropolis, who lived during Egypt’s New Kingdom, over 3,000 years ago when Amenhotep III was pharaoh. As part of the Egyptian elite, Menna and his family held important positions within the state and temple administration and must have enjoyed a comfortable life in Egypt’s upper class society. He made his career as overseer of fields and plowlands, as well as a scribe. His wife and children are also identified in the tomb, along with their titles, painting the picture of a prominent family, active in the state, religious, and royal realms of Egyptian society.
Documented and conserved by the American Research Center in Egypt.
