The Marseille Stele

The Marseille Stele (also known as The Offering Table of Qenhirkhopshef) was originally located in the Karnak Temple complex at Luxor, and likely made during the reign of Merenptah or his son Seti II. The 34 cartouches contain 30 royal names of 17 pharaohs, of which four are the (omitted) names of Ahmose's mother and wife (numbers 8,9,33,34). It now resides at the museum Musée d'Archéologie Méditerranéenne (Inventory Number 204) in Marseille, France, from which it is named.


Marseille Stele

Note: Cartouche 14 contains Aa-kheperu-en-ra which can only be a variant of Aa-kheperu-ra, the prenomen of Amenhotep II. The prenomen of Thutmose II (Aa-kheper-en-ra), is already present (12 and 24).
