The Ancient Egyptian noble Pabasa was Chief Steward to Nitocris I, Divine Adoratrice of Amun, during the Saite Period.[1] He is buried in tomb TT279, which is located in the El-Assasif, part of the Theban Necropolis, near Thebes.[2]

His sarcophagus was acquired in Paris in 1836 by Alexander Douglas-Hamilton, 10th Duke of Hamilton and is now housed at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow, Scotland.[3]
