Ptahmose (also Ptehmes ) was the treasurer under Amenophis III. in the ancient Egyptian 18th dynasty .

Ptahmosis probably officiated at the very end of the reign of Amenhotep III. and succeeded Merire in his office . The treasurer Ptahmose is only known from a statue in Florence today and a vessel inscription from Malkata . This inscription proves that he was in office in the 30th year of the ruler, at the time of his first Sed festival . The grave of Ptahmose is so far unknown.
