Thethi was an official of the 11th Dynasty,
serving in the reign of King Inyotef
II (c. 2131-2082 B.C.). Thethi was attached to the
royal court at Thebes, when the Inyotef clan ruled Upper
Egypt before the reunification of the lands was
accomplished by Mentuhotpe II.
He was the chief treasurer and companion of the king, and
he also supervised the building of the king's mortuary
complex. Thethi was buried near the monarch on the
western shore of Thebes.
