Colours: --
Remarks
・16 examples were unearthed at Dra Abul Naga (Gauthier 1908 [BIFAO 6]: 126 – 127). One example was unearthed from 'Areal A' in Dra Abul Naga (Kruck 2012: 125). Unknown examples were found at TT 184 (Fábián 2013a: 31; Fábián 2013c: 12).
・There is a possible statue of this Amunhotep but titles on it are jmj-st-a n jmn and Hrj-sA tpj jmn. If it is, Amunhotep had a father named [...]abu ([...]Abw) and a mother, Tuiu (twjw) (Dunham 1940 [JEA 26]). 
・Two bricks are housed in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA Boston: # RES.72.330, # RES.72.329). A museum in Liverpool also has a brick with two seal impressions (Borchardt, etc. 1934 [ZAS 70]: 33 n. 2).
The owner ascribed might have been identical to that of # 198 (=# 269). One should, however, bear in mind that Eichler pointed out the possibility that this Amunhotep who had # 198 to have been identical with the owner of a stela in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Inv. # 17.2.6Hayes 1990: 172-173, Fig. 94. Cf. Eichler 2000: 314), in which Kemis or Kemsi who had # 207 (and who may have been the same man as TT 398 Kamose called Nentawaeref whose cones were # 13, # 118 and # 119) is inscribed. If he was, our Amunhotep could not be the owner of the statue mentioned above because of the difference of the father's name.

・Macadam and Vivó associated this cone with TT 64, the tomb of Heqaerneheh (05-095 in Macadam's DALEX file 1 and 06-102 & 110 in his DALEX file 2; Vivó 2002: 24), probably because they have the same titles and their names resemble each other in appearance. However, the location where it was discovered is far from TT 64, and there is no evidence that Heqaerneheh was ever called Nesuterneheh. I have personally scrutinized the cone housed in the British Museum (BM: EA 15975) to find the character in question is none other than 'nswt (M 23 of Gardiner's sign-list)'.
