I'm not sure which thread to post my message.

A colossal red granite head of one of Egypt's most famous pharaohs has been unearthed in the southern city of Luxor, officials said.
The 3,000-year-old head of Amenhotep III - grandfather of Tutankhamun - was dug out of the ruins of the pharaoh's mortuary temple.
Experts say it is the best preserved example of the king's face ever found.
The 2.5m (8ft) head is part of a larger statue, most of which was found several years ago.
Antiquities officials say the statue is to be reconstructed.
"Other statues have always had something broken - the tip of the nose, or the face is eroded," said Dr Hourig Sourouzian, who has led the Egyptian-European expedition at the site.
"But here, from the top of the crown to the chin, it is so beautifully carved and polished, nothing is broken."

Quite the remarkable find. Given the state to which historical contemporary antiquities of the period are usually found in.

Archaeologists in Egypt have unearthed the sarcophagus of the mysterious Queen Behenu inside her pyramid's 4,000-year-old burial chamber, the inner walls of which are lined with hieroglyphic spells for the Queen's journey into the afterlife.

Two years of DNA testing and CT scans on 16 royal mummies conducted by Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, however, gave the firmest evidence to date that an unidentified mummy – known as KV55, after the number of the tomb where it was found in 1907 in Egypt's Valley of the Kings – is Akhenaten's.
The testing, whose results were announced last month, established that KV55 was the father of King Tut and the son of Amenhotep III, a lineage that matches Akhenaten's, according to inscriptions.
The mummy and DNA tests showed a normally shaped man without genetic conditions that might have given him both masculine and feminine features.

Unknown Royal Crown, possibly Egyptian

Hello,

New to this thread and seeking advice from the experts.

Family heirloom jewelry has Royal Crown inscribed (see picture). We believe (from word of mouth) that it is from modern Egypt, possibly 1900 to 1930 timeframe.

Note the crescent w/star and jewelry.

Can anyone suggest a book or other reference to confirm identification and origin of this specific inscription?

Thanks,

TT

Wafd Party

The Wafd Party ("Delegation Party"; Arabic: Hizb al-Wafd حزب الوفد) was a nationalist liberal party in Egypt. It was considered to be one of the main opposition parties, and so its involvement in Egyptian politics was considered crucial in the success as well as legitimization of any political decision.
