Ahmose Pen-Nekhebet

Ahmose Pen Nekhbet was an ancient Egyptian official who started his career under Ahmose I and served all the pharaohs until Thutmose III. His autobiographical inscriptions are important for the understanding of the history of the early New Kingdom, though less detailed than those of his contemporary Ahmose, son of Ebana.

Under Ahmose I he fought in Northern Canaan, he followed Amenhotep I to Nubia, accompanied Thutmose I to Naharin, campaigned with Thutmose II in Sinai.

He held many offices such as wearer of the royal seal, chief treasurer and herald. His autobiography ends with the assertion that he had been the tutor of Neferure, daughter of Hatshepsut.
