Nebneteru Tenry was a High Priest of Amun under Sety I.

Nebneteru's wife Merytre was Chief of the Harem of Amun. Nebneteru and Merytre are known from monuments of their son, the vizier Paser. They are mentioned in TT106, the tomb of Paser, Governor of the Town and Vizier as well as on statues belonging to him.[1]

Another son of Nebneteru Tjenry and Merytre is mentioned in the tomb of Paser. A man by the name of Titi(a), Steward in the temple of Maat is shown. Nebneteru's in-laws are mentioned as well. Merytre was the daughter of Aniy and born of the lady Nuia.

On a statue of Paser from Memphis, Merytre is said to come from Memphis (Hutkaptah). Nebneteru is mentioned on the statue as well and his titles are given as: High Priest of Amun in Southern Heliopolis (i.e. Thebes) and Sem Priest in the Temple of Ptah.[2]

A stamped brick (Museo Arch. Nazionale/Museo Egizio) can be found on the Global Egyptian Museum Site. The text reads:
