Document Sealings With the Throne Name of Thutmose III

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 120

Two sealings from Malqata have partially preserved imipressions of a rectangular seal inscribed with the throne name of Thutmose III, the great-grandfather of Amenhotep III. The seal is dominated by the figure of a striding lion with a tail that curves up over his back. In front of the animal is a cartouche with the name Menkheperre. Hieroglyphs above the lion's back and between its legs record the royal epithets The Good (or Perfect) God, Lord of the Two Lands.

The impression on this sealing preserves most of the lion, the hieroglyphs between his legs (Lord of the Two Lands), and most of the king's name, but the upper half of the impression has been flattened by someone's finger print.
