Amarna, Ancient Egypt. 18th Dynasty, 1364 - 1334 BC
Artifacts unearthed at Tel-el-Amarna during Egyptian explorations of the 1920's.

All my Egyptian artifacts were legally exported from Egypt prior to the 1970 UNESCO Convention, and subsequent international trade laws regarding antiquities. The items are from old American and European collections... many purchased in the 1920's, having resided in private collections ever since.

Akhenaten's city of Akhetaten (or Akhetaton), literally translates to "Horizon of the Aten (Sun God)".
The city was built as a new capital of Egypt under Pharaoh Akhenaten, and was dedicated to his new monotheistic religion centered around one god, the Aten (the Sun God). Construction began early in his reign (year 4=1364 BC or 1346 BC) and was likely finished in or around by year 9 (1359 BC or 1341 BC).
