Plaque with the cartouches of Apries

Late Period, Saite

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 130

This rectangular plaque bears two of the names of Apries: one one side is "the son of Re, Wahibre"; on the other is "King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Haaibre (hellenized as Apries), may he live forever." Found on top of an undisturbed foundation deposit of Thutmose III, this was part of a dedication made by Apries when he carried out construction within the Osiris temple precinct at Abydos.
