Iuput was High Priest of Amun from 944 to 924 BCE, during the reigns of his father Shoshenq I and his brother Osorkon I.[1]

Iuput held a variety of titles including high priest of Amun, generalissimo and army-leader and Governor of Upper Egypt.[1]

It is not known who Iuput's mother was, but it is assumed that Lady Tashepenbast was his sister. Nimlot B and Osorkon I were (half-)brothers of Iuput. Iuput's daughter by an unknown wife was named Nesikhonsupakhered. She was the wife of Djedkhonsiufankh, who was a fourth priest of Amun.[2]

Other Priests and Priestesses[edit]

From Iuput's time a handful of other people are known to have held positions in the Amun priesthood.

Djed-ptah-ef-ankh A served as second and third prophet of Amun in ca 945-935 BCE. Djed-ptah-ef-ankh was called the "King's Son of Ramesses" and "King's Son of the Lord of the Two Lands". He may have been related to the previous dynasty. Djed-ptah-ef-ankh was buried in the cache in DB320.[1]

Nesy who was a chief of the Mahasun (a Libyan tribe) served as fourth prophet of Amun.[1]
