Countries in the West and East, including lands in midst of the sea, were connected at one time to bring offerings to the king upon the great throne of Akhet-Aten. They worshipped the throne for all the goods of every land and for granting them the breath of life. This great international event in durbar was clearly a particular significant event in Akhenaten's career, but the import of the event itself remains obscure. Those who have espoused the idea of coregency between Akhenaten and Amenhotep III have argued that it might mark as part of the celebration of the transition to Akhenaten's sole rule. The attendance in the celebration would suggest that it was not simply the outcome of a successful military action, although some time during the Years 10–12, Akhenaten's armies had scored a victory somewhere in the vicinity of the Wadi el-Allaqi.
