The Book of the Dead of Hor (18th Dynasty)

The papyrus is only preserved in fragments; the provenance is not known, but maybe Thebes. The few preserved portions include the title of Hor, overseer of cattle of Amun, an important administrative position in the New Kingdom. Hor seems not to be attested from other sources.
