Stela of Rehuerdjersen

Middle Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 110

Rehuerdjersen was treasurer under Amenemhat I and Senwosret I, the first two kings of Dynasty 12. This stela comes from a Rehuerdjersen's cenotaph at Abydos, and the style dates from the reign of Amenemhat II, some forty years after the treasurer's death. The owner is shown seated at the left, behind a table piled with stylized loaves of bread; at the right, holding a bird for offering, is his brother, Heqatifi, who commissioned the stela. The inscription consists largely of the names of other family members.
