Example text

A Twentieth Dynasty stone carver, Amenpanufer was put on trial during the reign of Ramses IX for robbing the tomb of Seventeenth Dynasty king Sobekemsaf II. Amenpanufer confessed to the crime during an investigation instigated by the mayor of eastern Thebes, Paser, who accused his rival Pawero, the mayor of western Thebes, of being involved in a widespread tomb-robbing ring along with other high-level government officials. As a result of this investigation, forty-five robbers, including Amenpanufer, were found guilty of various incidents of theft, but there has been no proof that a tombrobbing ring existed.

Whether Ankhesenamun actually married Ay is uncertain. A cartouche (a line encircling certain types of names in hieroglyphic writing) with their two names side by side, which usually indicated marriage, adorned a ring that archaeologist Percy Newberry reported seeing in Cairo, Egypt, in the 1920s. He was unable to acquire the ring and Newberry’s claim was never corroborated; nonetheless, most Egyptologists accept his report as fact. Nothing more about Ankhesenamun’s fate is known, although many Egyptologists suspect that she died early in Ay’s reign.

Six years later, Amenhotep II again waged war, quelling uprisings in Palestine. Yet this king had less fear of foreigners than did his predecessors. He allowed Syrians to come into Egypt to work as craftsmen or engage in trade, whereas prior to this time foreigners had been generally kept out. The remainder of Amenhotep II’s reign was apparently without conflict, the king having exerted enough force initially to discourage further rebellion. However, a minority view among Egyptologists is that Amenhotep II dealt with another uprising in Nubia shortly before his death.
