Psusennes III was the High Priest of Amun at Thebes (976 BC – 943 BC) at the end of the 21st Dynasty. Little is known of this individual; he is thought by some to be the same person as (King) Psusennes II.[1] His name appears on a document found at the 'mummy cache' DB320 which describes him as a son of the High Priest Pinedjem II. This makes him a possible candidate for Psusennes II because Pinedjem II died in Year 10 of Siamun, who was the immediate predecessor of this Pharaoh.
