The Tomb of Pennut is a tomb located at the site of New Amada, an archaeological complex containing three ancient Nubian monuments spared from the rising waters of Lake Nasser. Pennut was the viceroy of Kush under Ramesses VI (1143–1136 BCE), the last king of the New Kingdom period. It consists of an antechamber and a niche with three destroyed statues. The chamber has scenes of Pennut offering to the gods and others depicting mourners at the Pennut.
