3 Royal Couple in a Garden (Semenkhkare and Meritaten?)

4 Akhenaten, Nefertiti, and the Royal Princesses: Aten, the Solar Disk, blessing the Royal family; detail of sunk relief fragment from Tell el-Amarna, ca B.C. [Dynasty XVIII] Akhenaten

5 Stela of a Western Asiatic soldier, his wife, and his servant Many ordinary people -- court officials, artisans, workers, soldiers -- accompanied the royal family to the new city at Amarna. Here a soldier and his wife relax at home, seated comfortably on stools. His spear is propped behind him, and a servant assists him in drinking beer through a bent tube, a device for straining out the dregs. The soldier, dressed in Western Asiatic style, may be a recruit from Egypt's widespread empire. His wife appears to be Egyptian, suggesting that intermarriage occurred in the cosmopolitan society of Amarna.

7 Kiya, a lesser wife of Akhenaten who was probably Tutankhamun's mother. Tutankhamun

8 Akhenaten - Private stela Traditionally placed in tombs or temples, private stelae or memorial tablets were rare at Amarna.
