"Amun welcome Minhotep for he was possessed of a divine heart which was beneficent towards the gods."
―excerpt of a eulogy to Minhotep[src]

Minhotep was a man who led the village of Siwa, Egypt at some point prior to 48 BCE. He was highly respected by Siwa's people for his religious piety, grand donations of gold, emeralds, and grain to the temples, and for nurturing a period of prosperity for the oasis town. For this reason, he was mummified and buried in Siwa's tomb in the Mountain of the Dead alongside his wife Agathoclea and son Teti. There, a papyrus scroll extolling Minhotep was placed on a low table set centered in the main chamber.
