The Ancient Egyptian artisan Sennedjem lived in Set Maat (translated as "The Place of Truth"), contemporary Deir el-Medina, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes, during the reigns of Seti I and Ramesses II.[1] Sennedjem had the title "Servant in the Place of Truth". He was buried along with his wife, Iyneferti, and family in a tomb in the village necropolis. His tomb was discovered January 31, 1886. When Sennedjem's tomb was found, in it there was regular furniture from his home, including a stool and a bed, which he actually used when he was alive.[2]

His titles included Servant in the Place of Truth,[3] meaning that he worked on the excavation and decoration of the nearby royal tombs.
