Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Atet


4th Dynasty

Atet was the wife of the important Prince Nefermaat, vizier to King Sneferu, who was probably his son. She was buried with her husband at Meidum and it is from her portion of the tomb that the famous, exceptionally vivid and well painted line of geese, now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo, was recovered. The quality of the paintings in the tomb reflect the particular interest which Nefermaat and Atet took in the arts, in which her husband was evidently an innovator.
