Ushabti of Minmose

Minmose was the overseer of works for the Egyptian pharaohs Thutmose III[1] and Amenhotep II. He took part in expeditions to Syria, during Thutmose's eighth campaign,[2] as well as Nubia[3] and, as commander of the elite forces, in Takhsy—a territory located between Damascus and Canaan. The expedition into Takhsy was likely related to Amenhotep II's campaign.[2]

In addition to overseeing the construction of many temples, Minmose collected taxes in Retenu, and in Nubia during Thutmose's Nubian campaign in the 49th year of the pharaoh's reign.[2] He lived in the 15th century BC.
