Ahmose was the son of Abana serving in the Egyptian Military as a marine commander under Ahmose I during the expulsion of the Hyksos[1] . During his many battles he severed numerous hands of his enemies after battle and attached them to a rope-coil. He was rewarded with slaves and land for the amount of people he killed. This is all mentioned in his tomb biography.[2]

He was eventually buried at El-Kab the walls of his tomb reading:

I have grown old,

Favored as before and loved (by my Lord).
I now [rest] in the tomb I myself made.[1]
