Amenhotep (Huy) was the high steward of Memphis under Amenhotep III in the Egyptian 18th Dynasty. With this title he was one of the highest officials at the royal court.
This granodiorite block statue was found at Abydos during the 1902-03 excavations by Flinders Petrie on behalf of the Egypt Exploration Society (EES), or Egypt Exploration Fund (EEF) as it was known at the time. Through Petrie’s publication of this season we know that the statue was found within the Temple of Osiris, specifically ‘just inside’ the pylon of Thutmose III (Petrie 1903: 36). This highlight looks through archival material in order to illuminate this statue’s journey from Abydos to its current location at the British Museum.
