last update: 25.03.2008

South Wall - Block No. 278

Stone: red quartzite (origin - from the "Red Mountains" of Djebel Akhmar, an area near Heliopolis)

Offerings to Amun, the hardly readable block shows on the left "Maat-ka-Ra, heqa waset" standing in front of a table full of offerings, behind her Ka is shown as a standard bearing her Horus Name "Powerful of Kas (wsr.t-kAw)". Right off the offering-table stands the ithyphallic Amun, above him it is written "King of Gods, Lord of Heaven, Lord of Earth, Prince of Thebes".
