You may find the answer in The City of Akhenaten, Part 1, pp. 142-68, by T E. Peet. However in that text, the caracter on the left is a Syrian soldier drinking directly from ??? (Found this information from Google)

In any case the male servant is more likely an Egyptian than a Syrian soldier.

From the hair style and the beard, I'd sooner think a Syrian, with what seems to be an female Egyptian.
