Hatchepsut is a poor example to pick. Its acknowledged that most of her depictions are innacurate as they show her as a man. She lived until what we would now call late middle age. Like many people sh ...

This is an Egyptology group, sadly not very active, which is one of the reasons I follow a lot of the Egyptologists and groups they post in on facebook.

You need to follow them (Hawass, Ikram, Naunton, Reeves etc) on Facebook and join some of the Egyptology groups.

No, they were not too thorough especially ‘round the back of colossi or at the top of obelisks (e.g. Hatchepsut’s) - basically anywhere the cartouches couldn’t be seen.

I don't know if it's the case here, but on many usurped statues the original name is not always removed. It may be that the original survives round the back, or on an arm, or just that the later carto ...
