Some kings in Lepsius[edit]

Hi. I'm still looking for something fine in the Denkmaeler, and it looks like I need again your help... here the link, choose Band VIII and search for page 257, figure a.
You should see a 22nd Dynasty relief (I know it's not your favourite period, though...). In my opinion, the king depicted twice with Amun-Ra is Hedjkheperre-setepenre Takelot-saaset-meramun (that should be Takelot II), in the right scene is followed by his son, the High Priest of Amun Osorkon (future Osorkon III), while on the left I suspect that he repeated the scene with his father instead, the HPA Nimlot, himself son of king Osorkon-sabast-meramun (Osorkon II for friends).
If you can confirm my readings, I'm going to crop the relief multiple times in order to illustrate the Wikipedia articles of all the trio... --Khruner (talk) 19:06, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Khruner, sorry for the delay. Yes I read the same thing, going from left to right, the first cartouche is definitely "Takelot Siese Meryamun" second is "Osorkon Sibastet Meryamun", third cartouche I have no clue, fourth is "Takelot Siese Meryamun" again, 5th (top) Hedjkheperre Setepenre and below is probably the same cartouche as the first, last two cartouches seem to belong to Takelot again.

The third cartouche should be a [Karo]mama, likely Takelot II's mother and Nimlot's wife. Thanks for the confirmation, this relief is a nice source of pics for many poorly illustrated articles, I'll crop it just now! --Khruner (talk) 20:07, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
I can see the mama part indeed but did not know that [Karo]mama even existed, as you know I am not really into post 1000 BC Egypt... But these nice pictures (and many others you have uploaded of kings of the TIP and Late Periods) makes me want to read the wiki articles. Iry-Hor (talk) 20:13, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Sure. Their articles are meant to be read :) Even though chaotic and with all the disagreements, this period is somewhat fascinating. Khruner (talk) 20:20, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Congrats!!!!^^ Regards;--Nephiliskos (talk) 09:50, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Nephiliskos thanks, you participated in it too, so congrats to you as well! Iry-Hor (talk) 12:15, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Iry-Hor, it feels so GOOD! ;D I hope that I FINALLY find some time and quiet to expand "Dwarfs and pygmies in Ancient Egypt" and "Homosexuality in Ancient Egypt", as I wished to do... Regards;--Nephiliskos (talk) 12:51, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

My home- and discussion page[edit]

I just re-created my lil' wikipedia home. Like it? ;) Regards;--Nephiliskos (talk) 00:06, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Nice and very colorful! Iry-Hor (talk) 19:55, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
What do you think about the text in the boxese at both sides?--Nephiliskos (talk) 22:07, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
Nephiliskos what do you mean, I don't see boxes on both sides? Iry-Hor (talk) 09:52, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Iry-Hor Wha...!? The blue-purple boxes at the home page and at the discussion page...? :D --Nephiliskos (talk) 10:19, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

But they are not on the side! I see them at the center of the page. Iry-Hor (talk) 11:27, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
Where they belong to. ;o) With "both sides" (initially "both sites") I simply meant the home page and the discussion page as such. ;) Srry, if I confused you. --Nephiliskos (talk) 15:32, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
Ah yes, ok. The boxes are nice and funny! And colorful as I said earlier. Iry-Hor (talk) 17:09, 15 October 2014 (UTC)


Hi. Have you ever heard about an device called "the Herodotus machine"? Some users persistently try to introduce this (fictitious?) "Herodotus machine" into the article of Khufu... Regards;--Nephiliskos (talk) 17:27, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Hello Nephi, no I have never heard about it. As always, I would think that this is fringe stuff, so unless it is very well referenced, I would think that any reference to this machine should be removed. Iry-Hor (talk) 08:31, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Just as I and Khruner thought. Herodotus merely mentions some sort of building construct made of timber wood. And he himself never ever invented anything like devices or machines. Thus... Thy for you quick response anyway. ;o) Regards;--Nephiliskos (talk) 10:51, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
