Piankh

(fl. c. 1094–1064 BC)
   High priest of Amun and military general at the end of Dynasty 20. He led his army against the viceroy of Kush, Panehsi, whose forces had overrun Thebes, advancing into Nubia, although it is not clear if he gained an outright victory. Letters written by him while on campaign have survived. It is not clear if he followed or preceded Herihor, but he was an ancestor of such independent high priests as Pinudjem I, who flourished under Dynasty 21.
