Wab-priest of Amen, Scribe of the domain of Khonsu

Liliane Aubert mentions other intriguing functions of this important priest. “The inscriptions adorning his sarcophagus (Niwinski pg. 118) tells us that he was “Scribe of organization and Grand controller of the domain of the royal son of Kush”, that is to say the countries of the South. “Scribe of the domain of Khnum, lord of the Cataract at Eléphantine”, so he supervised the border of the first Nome of Upper Egypt, furthermore “Scribe of the domain of Osiris, Lord of Abydos” north of Thebes, and “Scribe of the domain of Onuris-Chou, son of Ra” in the region of This north of Abydos”. See Aubert, pg. 85
