IntroAncient Egyptian steward
Is Steward
From Egypt


Hor was an ancient Egyptian official who was in office under Senusret I, around 1950 BC. Hor is known from a number of monuments, most of them found at Abydos, where he most likely had a chapel. He is also known from a stela found in the Wadi el-Hudi. His most important title was high steward. In this function he administrated the royal domains. He was bearing the highest ranking titles, such as Iry-pat (member of the elite) or Haty-a. Only one of his monuments is dated. That is stela Louvre C2. The monument bears the year date 9 of Senusret’s I reign, providing evidence that he was in office in the first part of that king’s reign.
