Chapter Summary

The Chicago stela provides more information about the organization of the priests of the deified Amenhotep I at Deir el-Medina. All three men on the Chicago stela, as well as the father of Kedakhtef (ii), Ipuy (iii), served as priests of the lord of the Two Lands. The priesthood of the cult of the deified Amenhotep is attested from the reign of Thutmose III. Chicago 11107, which dates to the reigns of Ramesses V-VII, documents a family of priests of the deified Amenhotep I at Deir el-Medina, and shows how several generations of the same family could accrue influential posts. At the time the stela was carved, Kedakhtef was deputy of the gang, one of his sons held the title "first priest" of Amenhotep I, and his other son served as a lower-level priest in the same cult.
