Abstract:
This paper presents a detailed study of a sunk-relief scene from the Temple of Khonsu at Karnak. This scene has not yet been presented in a detailed public-ation although references have been made to it in several publications. This study revealed the ambiguity of two main elements of the scene actioned in Karnak temples in the reign of Herihor; the first is the lost dedicated obelisk of Herihor and the second is evidence of a new cult of king Amenhotep I and its dating according to his figuration in the scene as “Imn-Htp n bnrt”.
