Thutmose may have been a vizier of the south around year 45 [1] of Ramesses II's reign. Thutmose is mentioned in vizier Prehotep II's tomb in Sedment, which may indicate that their tenures as viziers may have overlapped or followed one another. Tuthmose is also known from an ostracon found in the Valley of the Kings in Thebes. [2]
