Dear Leo,and all

some comments :

Leo :Fred's suggestion that Year 19 of WG could belong to Kashta and Year 12 to Takelot III seems particularly tenous since Amenirdis I(Kashta's Grand daughter) 1)may Not have been born yet during Year 12 of Kashta or 2)she may have been just a child at this time--since she survived into Shabaka's reign at the very least.

FP : ??? Amenirdis I was not Kashta granddauter, but his daughter, and could well have been a little girsl when she was adopted as were all God'wife (cf. Shepenupet I, Nitocris or Ankhnesneferibre who were all girls when adopted and died old).

On Shabaka-Nimlot being Wadi Gasus kings, it seems very improbable that Shabaka has left a king in Hermopolis because he installed himself in Egypt, contrary to Piankhy. So he probably control directly the Valley to Memphis.

          The Year 3 Quay text that Broekeman speaks about wld have been made c.15-20 Years after the Year 6 QLT for Takelot III. Assuming Takelot III had a reign of 19 Years, his Year 19 minus his Year 6 wld... more

            Dear Leo, In fact the epithet -meryamun would be applicable to virtually any pharaoh of this period (or for that matter for anyone from Ramesses II to Taharqo). I have yet to see Broekman's... more

              Dear Leo, Kitchen, TIP, 382, mentions that the God's Wife Amenirdis I is named in a Year 15 graffito of Shabaqo from the Wadi Hammamat. I do not know any details about this text and whether it... more
              • Ian, Does Morkot's theory say that the Year 12 date at Wadi Gasus should refer to Amenirdis' tenure as God's Wife rather than as a datable reference to her royal superior--whether it be Kashta, Piye... more

                  Hi Leo, Sorry, I mistyped Year 15 for Year 12. Both the Wadi Gasus and the Wadi Hammamat graffiti associate a Year 12 with Amenirdis I. In the former case Shepenwepet I is also named, and associated... more
