Tomb of Iurudef (found in 1985)

View over the tomb of IurudefIurudef was a Scribe of the Treasury of Amun and Scribe of the God's Offerings during the reign of Ramesses II (1290-1224 BC). More significant for his career was his relationship with the Overseer of the Treasury Tia. He seems to have acted as the latter's private secretary and may even have been responsible for the construction of Tia's tomb at Saqqara. This would explain the fact that Iurudef is not only represented in a number of places in the tomb (and also on the walls of another monument built by Tia at Kafr el-Gebel, near Giza) but even had his own burial-shaft within the precinct of his master. If we add that Iurudef may have been the tutor of Ramose, the famous scribe of the village of Deir el-Medina, he becomes a fascinating figure in his own right.
