Imhotep was a high official under Djoser, first monarch of the 3rd Dynasty. He is credited as the architect of that king’s Step Pyramid at Saqqara, the first major monument built of stone. In the New Kingdom, he was considered the patron of scribes and later was deified deification. He was also worshipped as the god of medicine during the Ptolemaic period. Imhotep is shown here seated with an open papyrus on his lap.
