Relief block with the heads of three Libyans
New Kingdom, Amarna Period
ca. 1353–1323 B.C.
From Egypt, Upper Egypt; Thebes, Karnak
Gift of Ernst E. Kofler, 1965
The sidelocks of the people on this relief block identify the men as Libyans. They need not be prisoners but could be members of the Egyptian army or envoys at a festival. As usual with sandstone relief pieces the block was part of a temple decoration at Karnak.
