Pedeamun was recorded as a doorkeeper of the temple of Amun at Thebes in ancient Egypt. His mummy is about 2,500 to 2,600 years old. Pedeamun’s outer coffins were destroyed in 1941 when Liverpool was bombed. The mummy has a small burn and water staining, which may date from this time. Two colours of linen are used for the wrappings, a reddish brown linen lying under the outer bandages of lighter bleached linen, and all the wrappings are now fragile.
The name Pedeamun can also be written as Padiamun since there is no definitive spelling of this ancient name. The transliteration from hieroglyphs to Roman script is is p'di'mn. Different Egyptologists vary with their spellings for this and other personal and place names.
