Chapter Summary

At the time the author started work in Luxor, the Epigraphic Survey was documenting the great Colonnade Hall of Amenhotep III and Tutankhamun at Luxor Temple. Analysis of the standing wall remains and the fragmentary material from the missing wall sections indicates that all four registers of Tutankhamun's decoration in the Hall documented rites associated with the annual Opet festival, the processions which were part of that festival, and the coronation of the king at the culmination of the rites. Amenhotep III's great water procession scene on the eastern face of his 3rd pylon at Karnak shows the king offering incense and a bouquet to the cabin, but a figure of Amenhotep is also depicted on the stern of the barge helping to steer with a long-handled oar. Liverpool fragment 1967.35 must have fallen off the badly fractured Colonnade Hall wall and had been recovered sometime after the 1890s.
