Lot Essay

Following the death of Ramesses II, the 19th Dynasty was marked by a series of short reigns and ensuing political unrest. The rule of the fifth Pharaoh, Seti II, was no different, with the usurper Amenmeses claiming the throne and acquiring the recognition of Upper Egypt during a portion of his six year tenure. This plaque would have been placed into the foundation of a shrine or temple dedicated by Seti II. For a similar example now at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, see no. 67.161.2.
