Egyptian funerary cone for Huy from Athribis, also known as Amenhotep, son of Hapu.
The stamp reads: The revered one before Osiris, the king's scribe, Huy of Athribis, justified.
Amenhotep, son of Hapu, was a multifaceted personality, who held a number of important offices under Amenhotep III (1388–1350 BC).
After his death, Amenhotep was deified and revered for his teachings as a philosopher and for his art of healing well into the Ptolemaic period.
Amenhotep/Huy was the owner of Corpus nos. 10, 40, 65 and of cone 622/A.11.
The present cone of Huy is registered as no. 65 with Davies/Macadam.
