The ivory scribe's palette is one of several found between the paws of the jackal god Anubis in the Treasury of the tomb of King Tutankhamun. It has six hollow spaces for colored inks and a slot for the pens.

The palette surprisingly bears the name of Meritaten, the sister of Ankhesenamun, who was the king's wife.

Meritaten was the daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, and the palette bears her name and titles and those of her mother.
