Who is Beketamun?

Beketamun or Beket was a princess of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, a daughter of Pharaoh Thutmose III. Her name means “Handmaid of Amun”.

Her name is inscribed on a faience votive object found in Deir el-Bahri. She is also mentioned on a wooden staff of her servant, Amenmose, and probably on a scarab. It is possible that she is the princess standing behind Princess Meritamen in the Hathor chapel in Deir el-Bahri.
