Description
Hereditary prince, count, wearer of the royal seal, chief treasurer, herald [of his Lord, ....], Ahmose, called PenNekhbet, triumphant; he says: I followed King Nebpehtire, triumphant. I captured for him in Zahi a living prisoner and a hand. ............ Ahmose, called PenNekhbet; he says: By the sovereign, who lives forever! I was not separated from the king upon the battlefield, from (the time of) King Nebpehtire, triumphant, to King Okhepernere, triumphant; I was in favor of the kings presence, until King Menkheperre, living forever. King Zeserkere, triumphant, gave to me, of gold: two bracelets, two necklaces, an armlet, a dagger, a headdress, a fan, and a mekhtebet. King Okheperkere, triumphant, gave to me of gold: two bracelets, four necklaces, one armlet, six flies, three lions, two golden axes. King Okhepernere, triumphant, gave to me of gold: three bracelets, six necklaces, three armlets, a mekhtebet, a silver axe. He says: I followed the kings of Upper and Lower Egypt, the gods; I was with their majesties when they went to the South and North country, in every place where they went; [from] King Nebpehtire, triumphant, King Zeserkere, [triumphant], King Okheperkere, triumphant, King Okhepernere, triumphant, until this Good God, King Menkheperre who is given life forever. I attained a good old age, having had a life of royal favor, having had honor under their majesties and the love of me having been in court. I followed King Zeserkere, triumphant; I captured for him in Kush a living prisoner. Again I served King Zeserkere, triumphant; I captured for him on the north of Imukehek, three hands. I followed the King Okheperkere, triumphant; I captured for him in Kush, two living prisoners, beside three living prisoners, whom I brought off in Kush, without counting them. Again I served for King Okheperkere, triumphant; I captured for him in the country of Naharin, 21 hands, one horse, and one chariot. I followed King Okhepernere, triumphant; there were brought off for me in Shasu very many living prisoners; I did not count them. The divine consort, the Great Kings Wife, Makere, triumphant, repeated honors to me. I reared her eldest daughter, the Royal Daughter, Nefrure, triumphant, while she was a child upon the breast .........
