Was this a major campaign or more of a border skirmish? What was the name of the governor/commander that was in charge of this campaign?

Hi,

We are all ready in a discussion about that in this topic, http://forum.egyptiandreams.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=5044&highlight=

Lutz gave a very interesting link to Wikipedia. It says: Akhenaten is known to have initiated at least one campaign into Nubia in his regnal Year 12, where his campaign is mentioned in Amada stela CG 41806 and on a separate companion stela at Buhen.[22]

For a translation of the stella you will have to look for the books Lutz mentions, on the internet I canít find any translation. So I canít say if it was a major campaign or more of a border skirmish. Hope this helps you a bit further.
