Rameses III Table of Nation

The Rameses III relief clearly illustrates that the people on the relief from left to right are Rmt (Egyptian), Tjhnw (Libyans),Nhsy (Kushites) and Aamw (Syro-Palestinians). This reality is discussed by F.J. Yurco, in his article on the Rameses III relief, in Egypt in Africa, (Ed.) Theorore Celenke (1996). In the Table of Nation figure B we see the traditional depiction of a Tehenu, the sidelock, shoulder cape and clean face.
