- Curator's comments
- Amenmose is known from his unpublished tomb 149 at Thebes (B. Porter & R. Moss, 'Topographical Bibliography of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts, Reliefs and Paintings' I (2) (Oxford: Blackwell Press), i, 260) where the name of his wife Sitmut also apparently appears. A further fragment of his is also in the British Museum (.107). The temple in which he served is otherwise unknown.
