Show Summary Details


Siptah had been the successor of Sethy II. On the basis of a number of cases where Siptah's cartouches have been overwritten by those of Sethy II, scholars concluded that Siptah must have been a predecessor of Sethy. Siptah was clearly young at his accession. A mummy anciently labeled with the prenomen of Siptah was found in the tomb of Amenhotep II. Siptah added his names to the fecundity figures below Sethy II's reliefs in the gateway of the pylon. It is at Thebes-West that most of Siptah's monuments are to be found.
