Partially preserved Egyptian funerary cone reading: “The revered one before Osiris, the overseer of the works of Amun in the Luxor temple, Suty, justified.”
The cone for Suty is registered as no. 408 in the Corpus of Davies/Macadam.
The name of Suty appears on a stele in the British Museum (BM 826), which is dated to the reign of Amenhotep III. Also the name of a certain Hori, the owner of cone Corpus no. 407, is recorded there and it has been argued that Suty and Hori might have been brothers, see Heyler 1959 [Kêmi 15]: 87 n. 1.
The tomb of Suty has not been found yet.
