Pawero served during the reign of Ramesses IX as the mayor of the western shore of Thebes. Pawero was involved during the tomb robbery scandal of that era. He was the chief of the necropolis police and a count. The outcome of the trial that resulted from this scandal is not known. Pawero threatened and abused a man named Paser, who demanded that the wholesale robberies must stop. Many high officials were involved with Pawero and his gang. The discovery of the robberies of the royal tombs caused a great scandal. An account of this scandal is given on the Abbot and Amherst Papyri.
