The Amduat papyrus of Panebmontu is an article by John H. Taylor who gave an analysis, within the scope of the British Museum, in 2016, the details of a funerary papyrus that serves as an abbreviated version of the Book of Amduat.

SummaryEdit

In 2008 the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan at the British Museum received, as a gift, a complete funerary papyrus that had been in private possession in England since the late nineteenth century. Inscribed for a Prophet of Amun-Re named Panebmontu, it is an abbreviated version of the Book of Amduat, copies of which were frequently paired with manuscripts of the Spells for Going Forth by Day (the ‘Book of the Dead’) in elite burials of Egyptian Dynasty 21 and early Dynasty 22.
