Tanutamun's short-lived reassertion of Kushite dominion, as the Assyrian armies returned, drove out the king, and pursued him to Thebes. The city was then sacked and despoiled of much of its treasure; Ashur-banipal returned home to Nineveh. In the north, Psamtik began the process of recreating a unitary Egyptian state and shaking off the bonds of Assyrian overlordship. The line of the Twenty-?fth Dynasty and its successors endured in their rule in Upper Nubia until the fourth century AD. In 343, king Nakhthorheb ?ed to Nubia in the face of a successful Persian invasion.

Keywords:   Tanutamun, Psamtik, Neitiqerti (Nitokris), Taharqua, Herodotus
