The Cairo Post reports the discovery of the remains of a high priest by the name of  Ankh-f-n-khonsu.  This individual lived during the 22nd Dynasty while the Ankh-f-n-khonsu commemorated in the Stele of Revealing lived during the 25th Dynasty but might have been a descendant of his namesake; or not. The Cairo Post says:

“The sarcophagus of Ankh-f-n-khonsu, a high priest of ancient Egyptian god Amun Ra, has been unearthed in the west bank of Luxor, Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al Damaty announced Thursday.

“The sarcophagus, which dates back to the 22nd Dynasty (943B.C-716B.C.,) was found in the tomb of Amenhotep-Huy, who served as Egypt’s viceroy and vizier during the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1391 B.C.–1353 B.C.)”
