Pa-di-mut was a priest and metal engraver in the Temple of Amun-Re at Karnak, Thebes (modern Luxor). The cartonnage case that enclosed his mummy was unusually carved in relief in the plaster before painting. The images are related to Pa-di-mut’s successful entry into the afterlife. On his chest, the jackal-headed god Anubis attends to Pa-di-mut’s mummy. Above it is seated the hawk-headed sun god Re-Horakhty, crowned with a solar disk. The figure of the deified Eighteenth Dynasty king Amenhotep I (1525–1504 BC), patron of the necropolis/burial ground, replaces the usual image of the god Osiris on the back.
