Well, strictly speaking, he did not "invent" The Aten who was a minor manifestation of the sun god. He simply made him the sole god of Egypt.

no one really know yet all you can do is speculate what I think would be the punishment you had to work a ? Amount of time hard labor building egypt a sort of slave punishment for only a few years then caught twice maybe life as a slave. Egypt was built from man power and great engineering projects that boggle our minds to this day.

1) Sorry I missed the y from any
2) I wonder if it was just if you did not worship the Aten you did not get a senior government job.

ok, Tnress, I got it now! Very Happy
is there ANY evidence...yes, there is, indeed the cult of the other gods was not erased. The aim was to give complete power back to the king himself. What Akhenton did was to establish that Amon was not anymore important as he was until that moment, declaring that the most important god was Aton and that the king was the sole able and authorised to speak and to interprete the will of the main god. The result was that the great power of the priets of the god Amon passed immediately to the hands of Akhenaton. He and his family were then venerated as gods themselves, but there are no proves that the other cults were erased in anyway, not even that of Amon.

i have wondered if after akhenaton there were people who blamed a certain group for all the "evils" of the Armana period
