Huye


Huye
Viceroy of Nubia reign of *Tutankhamun 1361-1352 BC.
    Huye held the post of Nubian Viceroy under *Tutankhamun. His rock-cut tomb, situated in the hill of Qurnet Murai at Thebes, dates to the end of the Eighteenth Dynasty and is the most important tomb in this area. Indeed, it provides one of the most important monuments of *Tutankhamun's brief reign, for the wall-scenes provide much information regarding the governor's administration during this period of the province from El Kab to Napata.
    This area produced most of Egypt's gold and this is evident in the tomb scenes. One series shows his investiture as Viceroy and he is also seen receiving the tribute of his province. The exotic landscape of Nubia is represented, with huts, palm-trees and giraffes, and the tribute illustrates the variety and wealth of goods produced by this district. It includes gold rings, gold-dust in sacks, jewels and ebony items. The *Nubian chiefs are also shown, accompanying Huye from Nubia and being presented to him and his brother, Amenhotep.
    Huye may also have been responsible for the construction of *Tutankhamun's great temple to Amen-Re at Gebel Barkal in Nubia.
