Sculpture: block statue of the early Eighteenth Dynasty (about 1550-1400 BC)
for a man named Djehuty
Note the erasure of certain hieroglyphs: these gave the name of the god Amun, and were removed during the reign of Akhenaten when all references to Amun were destroyed. The names of the goddess Hathor in line 1 and of the god Osiris at the top of line 2 were not removed.
