Roxana: “One formal inscription giving titles including chancellor, First after the King, administrator of the Great Palace, hereditary lord and Greatest of Seers which is a priestly title. He is also called a builder, a sculptor and a maker of stone vases.”

Nigel Strudwick has this translation:

Horus Netjerykhet.
The twin (?) of the king of Lower Egypt.
The seal-bearer of the king of Lower Egypt, first under the king, administrator of the great estate/mansion, iry pat, great seer, Imhotep, controller of sculptors, maker of stone vessels (?). (‘Texts From the Pyramid Age’ N.C. Strudwick 2005: 129)

Imhotep is written Jj-m-Htp:  M18 (jj) G17 (m) R4 (Htp) X1 (t) [Q3 (p) - ‘He comes in peace’

“Two of the most common titles require brief explanations: iry pat, also read ra pat, is sometimes translated ‘hereditary noble,’ although this translation does not convey the full meaning. The word pat expressed nobility as a religious or mythological concept rather than indicating any social class within the administration, and its counterpart for the ordinary people was rekhyt. iry pat thus means either “concerned with the pat ” or (read ra pat) “mouth of the pat”; either way it expresses the most senior noble rank and usually appears first in a title sequence. It is occasionally applied to women.” (Strudwick 2005: 27)

“Two titles which are usually taken as indicating high priests of specific cults are ‘Great Controller of Craftsmen’ and ‘Great Seer of Heliopolis,’ the cults being those of Ptah and Re respectively. We know next to nothing about the roles of these individuals, not even whether these were primarily a financial sinecure like the other titles, although the ‘Great Controller of Craftsmen’ (one or two in number) is seen involved in the procurement of tombs and architectural elements in two texts in this volume (Debehen and Nyankhsekhmet.” (Strudwick 2005: 29)
