Pennesuttawy was a Military Commander and Superintendent of the Southern Lands (Kush) during the beginning of the Nineteenth dynasty of Egypt.

Family[edit]

Pennesuttawy was the son of Minhotep and Maia. He was a brother of the High Priest of Amun Parennefer who is dated to the reigns of Tutankhamen and Horemheb. Another brother was the High Priest of Min and Isis named Minmose. The three brothers are mentioned in a family monument dedicated by the Chief of Works, Amenemone, who was a son of the High Priest, Parennefer. [2]

Pennesuttawy was married to the chantress of Amun (Amun-Re in Karnak) named Maia. They had at least two children:
