An appeal for information on Ancient Egyptian Noble Peshuper – Scribe of The Divine Adoratrice Amunirdis.

Peshuper held the title of “Scribe of The Divine Adoratrice Amenirdis I” and a wonderful quartzite statue exists in the British Museum, which can be seen here:
http://www.Amenirdis.net/peshuper_scribe_of_the_divine_adoratrice_amenirdis.html  

However, I can find no information regarding this noble.

As is explained on http://www.Amenardis.net/ I am trying to locate information on Amenirdis I (Amenardis I, Amunirdis I or Amunardis I), and her Officials – including Harwa (TT37) and Akhamenerau (TT404) but I am desperately trying to find the tomb and information on Peshuper to add to the page crated for him on http://www.Amenirdis.net/

If anyone has information that could be added to the web site, please e-mail me? Research@Amunirdis.net
Thank you for any information, sources or corrections.

I should also take this opportunity to explain that the following three domain names are all ‘pointed’ at the same web site:
http://Amenardis.net/
http://Amenirdis.net/
http://Amunirdis.net/  
This is because of the different spelling of this Kushite Queen’s name.

For a wealth of information on Harwa, “Great of the Greats”; “Grand Steward of the Divine Votaress”; High Priest and “Doorkeeper in the Temple of Amun”, take a look at the official excavation site here:
http://www.Harwa.it/

 

The www.Amunirdis.net
web site is still being designed and the current site should be regarded as
a ‘temporary’ site.

 

Here are some links to Amunirdis I’s Officials:

This alabaster statue of Amenirdis I (prenomen: Khaneferumut or Hatnefrumut) is probably the most famous image of this Kushite Queen – it inspired Verdi to compose Aida.
The statue is stunning when seen in real life. For many years it was on display in the Cairo Museum of Antiquities but since the ‘Black Pharaohs’ exhibition the alabaster statue has been moved for more of the public to see this magnificent depiction of an amazing Queen of ancient Egypt.
