I was a minor priest in Ipet-Isut and we were all driven out of the temples and our homes for being Amun's servants. The higher-ranking priests have been ordered to remain in the temple, probably so that the king's men can be certain they aren't hiding the temple's treasures from them. I came here with my family, knowing the village to be empty after the workers were ordered to move to Akhetaten."
