God's wife of Amun: the administration

The 'domain of the divine adoratice' was an important economical institution with a large number of personnel. The head managers of the estate were the 'high stewards' particularly influential at the end of the 25th and the beginning of the 26th Dynasty. Written sources indicate that there was a treasury and several institutions concerned with agriculture and food production.
