Poisoned Legacy

Amenmeses raised his standard of revolt first in Nubia. All Amenmeses' remaining monuments seem to derive from the period during which he controlled Thebes. Amenmeses' activity in the area of the Festival Hall is also demonstrated by the addition of his cartouches to a pair of Osirid colossi of Thutmose III at the entrance of the complex with a number of inscriptions added in subsidiary areas. Amenmeses is also attested at Thebes-West. The means by which Amenmeses' regime was brought to an end are obscure. Amenmeses' memory has survived in a far more universal way, in that his career was transmogrified into the Old Testament story of Jewish history law-giver.
