Scarab Commemorating Two Obelisks of Thutmose III
By the end of his reign, Thutmose III had erected five obelisks in the Temple of Amun at Karnak; two pairs and one that stood alone. The inscription on this scarab, "Menkheperre, whose two obelisks endure in the temple of Amun," seems likely to commemorate the placement of the first pair, but no date for this event is given.
