Abstract:
This article aims to republish and study the scenes and inscription represented on the soffit of the entrance leading to the longitudinal hall of the tomb of Jmn-m-jn.t in the Sheikh Abdel Qurna hill. The soffit is divided into two registers, the upper register contains a scene associated with the birth of the sun god in the netherworld, while the lower register was divided into three sections. The middle one comprises the offering formula, whereas the second and third sections contain identical scene depicting the tomb owner Jmn-m-jn.t kneeling, surmounted by the rdjt-jAw formula. The inscription can be dated to the first half of the Nineteenth dynasty, precisely to the reign of King Ramesses II.
