Got cut off by the Internet. So, as I was saying, Akhenaten was still living then in his final year, which was 17, as there are several wine jar labels marked "Year 17". The same can be said for Tutankhamun as, based on a "Year 10" label from KV62, he also made it to I Axt, at least. Some believe Tut lasted through the winter, dying in the spring, judging by the fauna in his tomb. It seems quite plausible.

    Because we know what month of the year the vintage ripened during this period [I Axt, the first month of the Egyptian calendar, mentioned on a label from Amarna with "Year 1"] at least we can know... more
