Name[edit]

There are 2 entries for him: see also Akhnaten. User:Olivier

Yes but: Akhnaten is the play isnt it? User:Es02

This guy is also Amenophis IV (see, for example History of Egypt). Amenophis doesn't sound at all like Amenothep to me, why the two spellings (or names).

Amenophis is the Greek version of Amenhotep ... which in itself is just a rough transliteration of the hieroglyphic. User:Ffabris

co-rule with Amenhotep III confirmed[edit]

Apparently a new find in Luxor confirmed that Amenhotep IV, alias Akhenaten, did have a period of co-rule with his father Amenhotep III. A mural painting dating from Amenhotep III's Heb Sed shows both pharaoh's together with their names mentioned together. According to the minister of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim Ali al-Sayed, this is an important find. Alas I can only find a Dutch language newspaper source: http://www.standaard.be/cnt/dmf20140206_00967016 Has anyone a English language source confirming this?-- fdewaele, 6 February 2014, 18:27 CET

Semi-protected edit request on 14 March 2015[edit]

Please edit this page so that B.C. (i.e., "before christ") uses the modern, more culturally sensitive designation B.C.E. ("Before Common Era") Trategos Sol (talk) 15:01, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Per WP:ERA, we do not change the era style without consensus on the article. These changes thus are unnecessary, particularly because both the old and new styles are acceptable on Wikipedia. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 16:40, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
