Location

Nome: 6th Upper Egyptian nome

Geographical coordinates: 26°10′12″N / 32°43′38″E

Description

Nothing can be said about Qena in times of Hatshepsut. It is not clear if objects bought there come from this site or it is simply a market place for objects from the area. However, two artefacts from the Thutmoside era are known from there. One of them is the stela of Thutmose II representing him with his wife, queen Hatshepsut and her mother, queen Ah-mes, before Ra-Horakhte. The other object, an offering table,[1] cannot be dated so precisely as the cartouche carved on it contains only the name Ḏḥwtj.
