Stela Showing Amun-Ra, Mut & Khonsu

Stela Showing Amun-Ra, Mut & Khonsu Period, about 141-116 BCE. Xois, Egypt. Pharaoh Ptolemy VIII (170-116 BCE) is shown making an offering of Maat (a symbol of truth and justice) to the divine family Amun-Ra, Mut & Khonsu. He is followed by two queens, both named Cleopatra. This stela was erected in a sanctuary at Xois, in the Nile Delta, showing that the cult of the god Amun-Ra blossomed beyond Thebes.
