PHARAOH TUTANKHAMUN :
was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (ruled c. 1332–1323 BC in the conventional chronology), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom or sometimes the New Empire Period.
He has, since the discovery of his intact tomb, been referred to colloquially as King Tut. His original name, Tutankhaten, means "Living Image of Aten", while Tutankhamun means "Living Image of Amun". In hieroglyphs, the name Tutankhamun was typically written Amen-tut-ankh, because of a scribal custom that placed a divine name at the beginning of a phrase to show appropriate reverence. He is possibly also the Nibhurrereya of the Amarna letters, and likely the 18th dynasty king Rathotis who, according to Manetho, an ancient historian, had reigned for nine years—a figure that conforms with Flavius Josephus's version of Manetho's Epitome.
The 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb, funded by Lord Carnarvon, received worldwide press coverage. It sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun's mask, now in the Egyptian Museum, remains the popular symbol. Exhibits of artifacts from his tomb have toured the world. In February 2010, the results of DNA tests confirmed that he was the son of the mummy found in the tomb KV55, believed by some to be Akhenaten.
His mother was his father's sister and wife, whose name is unknown but whose remains are positively identified as "The Younger Lady" mummy found in KV35. The "mysterious" deaths of a few of those who excavated Tutankhamun's tomb has been popularly attributed to the curse of the pharaohs. ====

The beautiful recently reconstructed Temple of goddess Satis on the island of Elephantine. The town was called Abu (𓍋𓃀𓃰𓈊𓊖) meaning ‘elephant’ in dynastic times hence the Græco-Roman etymology and periodically acted as the southernmost boarder of the Egyptian Empire. This is a Hathoric pillar in relief and is a great example of the Thutmoside style. Precise and elegant, it’s depicting Menkhepera Thutmoses III being embraced by the ram-headed inundation and creator god Khnum who molded and breathed life into mankind on his potter’s wheel (similar to Athena and Prometheus in the Greek canon of creation). Taken my me 🤓📱 New Kingdom, XVIIIth Dynasty, painted limestone, Aswan, Island of Elephantine #egyptology#archaeology#ancientegypt#ancientegyptian#worldreligion#religiousstudies#ancientworld#ancienthistory#arthistory#art#architecture#bbctravel#travelegypt#mythology
