Dig Update



Otto's Dig Diary


15 APRIL 2009
KV10/KV-63’s 2009 Season officially ended March 24th. As always…. time proved too short to accomplish all we had planned to get done, but in spite of that the season was quite fruitful.

Otto Schaden has posted an update

Otto's Dig Diary

This summer has been especially busy for the KV-63 staff hence this update is rather substantial. It includes:

Dr. Schaden’s newest Dig Diary

A list of new KV-63 articles and publications (see the Publication tab)

Details on the upcoming Howard Carter Symposium (see Lecture tab)

Information on ‘Tutankhamun: The Latest Discovery in the Valley of the Kings and the Egyptological Art of Susan Osgood’ (see Exhibit tab)

30 new images…. including some never before seen (under Photos~2009)
http://www.kv-63.com/photos2009.html

and below the Oct. 4th Update
Quote :
A Special Commentary on the Menkheperre Seal by Dr. Otto Schaden
A mud seal bearing the impression of a cartouche of Menkheperre (Thutmosis III) was found in Pot 3 in March of 2006. *A photo of the seal can be found under the 'Photos ~ 2009' tab.

The appearance of a Thutmose III cartouche is, we believe, the result of the use of his famous name on scarabs and seals well beyond his actual period of reign. Late era kings and the Ptolemies were still adding Thutmosis III's images to the walls of Karnak Temple!

The incomplete seal impression is very intriguing, for it is clearly a cartouche, but the only surviving elements are the sun disc (re) and the beetle (kheper). The text has several likely possibilities for restoration ---

It could have been [Men]kheper-Re (Thutmosis III)

or, [Men]khepr[u-]re (Thutmosis. IV)

or, [Neb]kheper-Re (Tut)

or, Kheper-[khepru]re (Ay)


The first two are possible, for we did have a Menkheperre impression in the tomb shaft, and in mixed fill over the East Huts we did have mention of Thutmosis IV on an undated ostracon. The materials in KV-63 could fall into Horemheb's era, but we would expect a djeser sign if Horemheb's name was intended here.

Tutankhamun or Ay (see above) would fit best with the ceramics and other materials found in KV-63. As Tut was followed by Ay, our general dating as "Tut era, give or take a few years" would allow for the restoration of Ay's prenomen here.

The bottom part of the seal is lost. The mud can be fragile and may have disintegrated a long time ago. The shaft, chamber and the storage jars have all been cleared, so there is no chance of finding the missing lower portion of this seal impression.

According to Stephen Cross’ article, the clearing of KV63 and KV55 would have occurred in Ay’s reign, before the flood which buried KV55,62 and 63 in debris (loosely speaking) until modern times, starting with Carter finding KV62.
