Marianne:
"Are you trying to say that "Piphurrias" is a reference to Amenhotep III?"

Tory:
"I believe I was crystal clear. None of the examples we have for "Nb" in the throne name of Amenhotep III ever become Pip in Akkadian. So /Pip/ was not how Amenhotep III's prenomen was written in Akkadian, not once in numerous examples. Why is this so hard to understand?"

Did it ever occur to you even once that those who wrote
the prenomen of Amenhotep III were not the same ones, necessarily, who wrote the prenomen of Tutankhamun? So how does how Amenhotep's name was written [and there were certainly enough variants there!] preclude someone else writing the "nb" element differently *years later*--and even in an eccentric manner? Your repeated pleading that because something didn't happen at one time it could never happen in the future [when it obviously did!] is terrible logic. It's like saying that because nobody ever flew a pair of airplanes into a couple of buildings in the US before it couldn't have happened on 9/11, either! It happened because one CAN hit buildings with airplanes, just as one CAN substitute "b" or "p" for "n" and "P" for "b" is laughably common. It's been done elsewhere--as I demonstrated To me THAT is what is crystal clear and I truly do wonder what is so difficult to understand about that.
