Iuput held a variety of titles including high priest of Amun, generalissimo and army-leader and Governor of Upper Egypt.[1]

It is not known who Iuput's mother was, but it is assumed that Lady Tashepenbast was his sister. Nimlot B and Osorkon I were (half-)brothers of Iuput. Iuput's daughter by an unknown wife was named Nesikhonsupakhered. She was the wife of Djedkhonsiufankh, who was a fourth priest of Amun.[2]

Other Priests and Priestesses

From Iuput's time a handful of other people are known to have held positions in the Amun priesthood.

Djedptahiufankh A served as second and third priest of Amun in ca 945-935 BCE. Djedptahiufankh was called the "King's Son of Ramesses" and "King's Son of the Lord of the Two Lands". He may have been related to the previous dynasty. Djedptahiufankh was buried in the cache in DB320.[1]

Nesy who was a chief of the Mahasun (a Libyan tribe) served as fourth priest of Amun.[1]
