Afterglow of Empire

Correlating rulers' names with Manetho; datelines and regnal years; significant figures (high priests or pontiffs; God's Wives) it has been suggested that at least some of the high priests of Amun of the Twentieth/Twenty-?rst Dynasty transition employed their own dating eras, and that it is because of this that kings' names are not found on dated Theban documents. The view that such regnal years do in fact belong to kings' reigns remains the most likely solution. Twenty-first Dynasty Libyan names of royal/pontifical families beginning with Osorkon

Keywords:   Manetho, Kings of Tanis, Thebes, Nesibanebdjedet, Panedjem I, Henttawy, High priest, Osorkon, Shabtis, Tanis silver
