Physician to the King,
Tomb 5 at Akhetaten,
scenes showing decoration of the Aten temple. Also has praise
of Akhenaten 'the god who fashions mankind, and who makes the
Two Lands live'.
Pentu is one of the few
officials from the reign of Akhenaten who appears to have survived
the 'anti-Aten' backlash and continues in government under the
service of Tutankhamun. It is thought that Pentu became the Southern
Vizier during the reign of Tutankhamun and is even (possibly!)
shown in Tutankhamun's tomb as part of the team which is pulling
Tutankhamun's coffin towards his tomb.
It is thought that Pentu
must have had close ties with Ay, and was by using this relantionship
and Ay's link to royalty that Pentu was able to continue in office.
