Vizier Rekhmire served as Mayor of the city of Thebes and Vizier of Upper Egypt, and was responsible for administration and justice during the reign of the great pharaoh Thutmose III. The vizier’s tomb is a cultural legacy of international significance. The textual and iconographic details of TT100, the largest private sepulcher of the 18th Dynasty in the Theban necropolis, will be analyzed in this work.
The first volume of the study of the tomb of the vizier Rekhmire offers a detailed description of the well-known scene of foreigners bringing tribute. Over five registers, representatives of the lands of Punt, the Keftiu, Nubia, Retenu and Levantine and Nubian captives, parade before the vizier carrying different products from their respective countries as gifts intended for the pharaoh.
The different aspects of this scene are examined in depth, especially those relating to the people of Keftiu. The representations of these people provide clues as to their origins, and to the reasons for their presence in Egypt during the reigns of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, which have been subjects of academic controversy. The author also raises various hypotheses about the possible causes of the damnatio memoriae that the vizier and the decoration of his tomb were subjected to.
