Until recently not much was known about Amanikhareqerem. His name only appeared on two ram figures and an object found at Napata.
In recent years new excavations at Naqa provided more evidence for him. In 1998, a sandstone medallion with his name was found and recently a temple decoration with his name was excavated at the same place. The new evidence points to a date in the 1st century AD for this ruler and not in the 2nd century AD as previously thought.
