Who is Amenhotep (Huy)?

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. Amenhotep, with the nickname Huy, was a member of an influential family. His father Heby was mayor of Memphis. His brother Ramose was vizier under Amenhotep III. His son Ipy was high steward under Akhenaten. The family member's accomplishments are one of the rare cases where an influential family kept its high position under the latter king.

Amenhotep is known from a high number of monuments. In Memphis, there was found a statue reporting his building work for his king. Another fine statue was found at Abydos. Already in the early 19th century, there was found in Saqqara his looted tomb. It contained a sarcophagus, a granite canopic chest, model scribal boards and a stele with a long religious text.
