Relief belongs to Ramessesnakht

This fragment of limestone relief belongs to Ramessesnakht, an important character who had the functions of scribe of the king,  general and majordomo of the Ramesseum and  commander of the archers.

The piece comes from his tomb which was probably situated in the necropolis of Saqqara. On the relief, the head of Toui, the wife of Ramessesnakht, can still be seen.

She was known as "singer of Hathor, mistress of the Sycamore of the South". This specific title is one of the testimonies in favour of the Memphite provenance of the piece.
