Especially in the Amarna "Tar Pits".

Btw, what is the " Newberry Ring"? I googled it, but I got a lot of nonsense listings?

A ring combining the names of Ankhsunamun and Aja in cartouches (Berlin, ÄMP 34316).

Percy E. Newberry : King Ay, the Successor of Tut'ankhamun. - In: JEA 18. -1932. - pp. 50 - 52:
Quote:
"... Mr. Blanchard of Cairo acquired last spring, from an unknown site in the Delta, a blue glass finger-ring which has engraved on its bezel the inscription given in Fig. 1. Here we have side by side the prenomen of King Ay and the name Ankhesenamun, both names being written in cartouches. Ankhesenamun was Tutankhamun's widow and the "Heiress" of the family of Akhenaten; the two names side by side on this ring, notwithstanding the fact that no titles are given, can only be interpreted as evidence of the alliance of the two people. We see therefore, that King Ay regularized his position by marriage with the Hereditary Princess Ankhesenamun, the widow of his immediate predecessor on the throne. ..."

Greetings, Lutz.

The link seems to have broken down. You think you can update the location?

Doesn't seem to be. I got URL not found. Might be the browser.

123paul, you seem to be asking the same thing as Alona. Did you ever find anything?
