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


11th Dynasty

Iti was the 'King's Treasurer and Head of His Troops', a Royal Seal Bearer and the owner of a tomb at Gebelein which was extensively painted, an example of an art form which seems particularly to have flourished during this time of some political confusion. In addition to customary scenes relating to It's life and the ceremonies attending his funeral, there are less usual sequences, including one featuring a large sailing ship armed with shields. There is also a scene of a bullfight, an event which was evidently popular during this period.
