The most important dignitary bore the title "tjati" "TAti"translated as "vizier", who in the IVth Dynasty, was regularly one of the royal princes.
Later the office passed into the hands of some outstanding noble, and then it tended to become hereditary. In the titularies of the early viziers, we find the title: He was also the supreme judge, and bore the epithet "prophet of Maat". The earliest attested reference to this highest administrative office was written in ink on a stone vessel from the Step Pyramid of Netjerikhet at Saqqara the vizier Menka of the middle of the IIth Dynasty.
In the beginning of the Early Dynastic period, the vizier bore the titles "Tt". And official called "Tt" is depicted on the Narmer palette.
He walks in front of Pharaoh and carries his regalia. The tripartite title held by the vizier may indicate his threefold nature Wilkinson, p. The word "vizier" is the French spelling of the Turkish "vezir", which was the title of the Sultan's prime minister. This in turn comes from the Arabic "wazir", or "porter".
In Ancient Egypt, the vizier wore a special garment which remained unchanged for thousands of years. It was a plain smock made of pure white cotton which symbolized his impartiality.
Notice above the young Ptahhotep the cartouche of Pharaoh Izezi top of second columnwhereas above the older Ptahhotep we read "in front of Maat" third column. The vizier was the head of the administration, but at various times, and particularly at Thebes, the vizier might also be the chief priest.
In the Old Kingdom, the role of the Egyptian state was organizational: Irrigation works were the responsibility of the local responsible. Viziers heard all domestic territorial disputes, maintained a cattle and herd census, controlled the reservoirs and the food supply, supervised industries and conservation programs, and were also required to repair all dikes.
The bi-annual census of the population came under their authority, as did the records of rainfall and the varying levels of the Nile during its inundation. All government documents used in Ancient Egypt had to bear the seal of the vizier in order to be considered authentic and binding.
Tax records, storehouse receipts, crop assessments and other necessary agricultural statistics were kept in the offices of the viziers.
In addition, young members of the royal family often served under the vizier. In this capacity, they received training in government affairs.
It is probable that throughout Egyptian history, the viziers were some of Pharaoh's most trusted allies. The vizier was usually in constant contact with him, consulting him on many important matters. Family members, particularly those who might hold a claim to kingship, could often not be trusted.
But viziers, even though at times did elevate themselves to kingship, were probably most often selected not only for their skills, but because Pharaoh could trust them to carry out his will without the fear they might overthrow his rule.
In the tombs of viziers we see various crafts at work in different tasks.
His responsibility was not little. Watch over all that is done in it.* Global warming is defined by the American Heritage Dictionary of Science as “an increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere,” either by “human industry and agriculture” or by natural causes like the Earth has “experienced numerous” times “through its history.”.
