You know that wedding vase that is believed to show the marriage between the king of Ugarit and an Amarna princess? I was just wondering if there were any pictures of it, just for curiosity's sake.

Would you like me to search? I might not come up with much, but I'll try!

I think there's plenty more. I'd go looking for the rest, but I've got homework and stuff. TTYL!

That's interesting i never heard anything about that before. Are we sure she was a Princess? I am sceptical for two reasons: 1) Egyptian princesses didn't marry foreigners, at least not until a lot later (Solomon etc)
2) If their was a true Amarna princess available for Horemheb to marry, then surely he would have married her instead of Mutnojmet who was only a member by marriage. Maybe she was just a high ranking female. I remember reading something somewhere of a Prince who asked for an egyptian princess and after some time was sent a lady who he later found out was not a princess mearly and aristocrat. Maybe this was her.

Probable. Though "barbarian" was Greek, I bet the Egyptians used it first. They didn't like outsiders. They thought they were lesser. Most of the time, they were right! Laughing LOL. And I'm English!

I think we had this topic pretty much covered at the forum of AntiquatedIdeas.com.

Too bad that there are so much Egypt boards and we Egypt fans are scattered this much. Smile

The closest pic of the vase I found in a book that I don't know whether it was ever translated to English. I don't know who's got the idea that this girl was an Amarna princess. There's nothing that refers to it.
