Hi Tory,

Thanks for the interesting list and chronology. But could you perhaps be more clear about the dates. I mean. Are these all stray dates, such as the years 28 and 30 probably are, or are the kings named as well. If so can you indicate this. Also, "bold red" doesn't work. Perhaps you should better use italic or even better, underlined text in whatever color (except white :-) )

Regards,
Ian

          Hi Tory, with 'doesn't work' I meant, I do see these items in red, but don't see any difference between "bold" red and normal red. It is perhaps the color red that makes it difficult to distinguish... more

            Ok so ignore bold and just focus on the red. Everything in red is a wine-jar found in the city of Akhetaten with a year-date and the official title of the wine overseer at the time of the date. These ... more

              Hi Tory, Ah, ok. Thanks. But if they are all anonymous, how did you distinguish one from the other with the same overseer title, and how did you decide when the title changed and when it changed back ... more

                I would suggest you read J. Cerny's article in JEA 50 (1964). The wine overseer is an official attached to the royal court. These jars are his responsibility. Jars with the same year-date, same title ... more

                  Tory, Thanks for the reference. I'm afraid I won't be able to purchase it. You have pretty interesting stuff here. Regards, Ian
