Hello everyone !
I was watching a program on the tv channel national geographic about Tuthmosis III as the succesful military leader as he was ( I didn´t know that) and they did mention the name of his royal scriber Thanuny.
Who was this Thanuny? What is known about him?
Have they found his tomb or grave?
Hope someone know anything about this.

He was buried in Thebes

TT74. Tjenuny, Army Scribe, later general, Time of Tuthmosis III - Tuthmosis IV
Wife: Mutiry (Songstress of Toth and Nehemawat)

There is a bit about his tomb (including pictures of some of the decorations) on osiris.net:

The names are spelled a bit different in different places but Thanuny = Tjenuny = Tjanuny. Very Happy

Tuthmosis III was a great military leader and may have gone on as many as 22 military campaigns. The combines loot from his captures and the tribute he demanded added a huge amount of wealth to Egypt.

There's more info about Tuthmosis III in this thread if you're interested:
