Abstract:
Kings and gods adorn the walls of Egyptian temples in face-to-face meetings. The relation between the King and the gods in offerings scenes represents the idea of an exchange or describes the exchanges between the King and the gods. The benefit of the offerings represents both the act of the King and the reward of the gods to him. When the King (provider) gives an offering to the gods (recipients) they give to him a good reward related with that offering. The subject of this paper is a special kind of reward. In some offerings the King is rewarded with Egypt itself, Kmt and its synonyms (Isty, BAqt, % nwt, &A, &Awy, &A-mry, &A-^maw, &A-MHw). The paper will discuss the hieroglyphic words for the word .reward. and its synonyms. And it will examine a number of texts where Egypt appears as a reward for the King.
