Nauny papyrus – MMA 65 – TT 358

Nauny nAwny
MMA 65 – Winlock 1928-1929, tomb TT 358
Also known as Nany, Naun

Mistress of the house, Chantress of Amen-Re, the king of the gods, Daughter of the King

Nauny died in her seventies. She bore the title “king’s daughter,” which probably means that she was a child of the High Priest of Amun and titular king of the Theban area, Pinedjem I. Niwinski mentions her as daugther of Herihor

As was customary during the Third Intermediate Period, Nauny’s funerary equipment included a hollow wooden Osiris figure, which contained this papyrus scroll inscribed with spells from a collection of texts called the “Book of Coming Forth by Day” – today usually known by its modern name, the Book of the Dead. When unrolled, this scroll is more than seventeen feet long (source The Met)
