Poisoned Legacy

It is unclear whether the titulary of the restored Sethy II differed substantively from that used in his first years. Only one full titular is formally dated and while the king had a number of variant Horus and Nebti names and orthographies of his cartouche names, they cannot at present be shown to be chronologically significant. The state of the royal family at the time of Sethy II's return to Thebes is not fully clear. The only pieces of evidence for a named child of Sethy II are the secondary representations of Sethy-Merenptah B in the Karnak shrines. Sethy II erected a pair of obelisks on the Rameses II-built quay at the western limit of the Amun precinct, and nearby a stela. Sethy II's efforts in the Amun temple were largely confined to replacing erased cartouches of his father and those of Amenmeses with his own names.
