| Pakepu |
|Location||Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge|
Based on the style of Pakepu’s coffin set, in addition to his title, we know that he lived in Thebes at the end of the 25th Dynasty (c. 680 – 664 BC). At this time in Egypt’s history, a family of rulers originating from the Kingdom of Kush in ancient Nubia (modern day Upper Egypt/northern Sudan) ruled the country.
Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) gifted the coffins to the Museum in 1869 following a visit to Luxor. No record of the mummy housed in Pakepu’s coffins can be traced in the Museum’s records.
