19th Dynasty

Akhpet was Chief of the Embalmers of the Lord of the Two Lands at the beginning of the Nineteenth Dynasty; he was also named 'Truthful Scribe of the King who Loves Him'.

He was buried at Saqqara in a tomb which was built just beyond the mortuary temple of King Teti, the first king of the Sixth Dynasty. Akhpet's tomb was decorated with very fine reliefs and he was placed in a large pink anthropoid sarcophagus.
