Also known as Paynedjem, Pajnedjem, Pinezem, Pinudjem, Panedjem
Period c. 990 – 969 BC

Ranke I, pg. 114, 10

The papyrus is attributed to Pinedjem I by Sadek, see Sadek page 227-228. Niwinski connects this papyrus to Pinedjem II and a different coffin. His note on page 177, ‘Sadek, op. cit., pp.227 and 344 mistakenly attributes this papyrus to the HP Pinudjem I’

Pinedjem II was the son of Menkheppera, grandson of Pinedjem I and married to his sister Isetemkheb D and his niece Nesykhonsu. His brother Tjanefer was burried in the Bab el Gasus Cache.
