Currently not on display

Funerary cone belonging to an official called Amenemka who was a seal-bearer to the pharaoh. One end is rectangular in shape and has been stamped with a hieroglyphic inscription. On the lower right hand side, beneath two short columns of text, is a figure of the owner kneeling, with arms raised in a gesture of adoration before the cartouche of Thutmose III. The inscriptions reads,"Seal-bearer of the king of Lower Egypt, fourth prophet of Amun, Amenemka the justified, his son, second prophet of Thutmose III, Eskedenu". Amenemka's tomb has not yet been discovered but is thought to be at Asasif or Dra Abul Naga
