Ramesses III and the God Amun

On this stone stele made around c. 1150 BCE, one can see Ramesses III (r. 1186–1155 BCE) making an offering the god Amun. Ramesses III is considered by many historians and archaeologists to be the last great ruler of Egypt from the New Kingdom (c. 1550–c. 1077 BCE). This stele was likely made in either Thebes or Memphis. (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels)
