There are 2 entries for him: see also Akhnaten. User:Olivier

Yes but: Akhnaten is the play isnt it? User:Es02

This guy is also Amenophis IV (see, for example History of Egypt). Amenophis doesn't sound at all like Amenothep to me, why the two spellings (or names).

Amenophis is the Greek version of Amenhotep ... which in itself is just a rough transliteration of the hieroglyphic. User:Ffabris

co-rule with Amenhotep III confirmed[edit]

Apparently a new find in Luxor confirmed that Amenhotep IV, alias Akhenaten, did have a period of co-rule with his father Amenhotep III. A mural painting dating from Amenhotep III's Heb Sed shows both pharaoh's together with their names mentioned together. According to the minister of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim Ali al-Sayed, this is an important find. Alas I can only find a Dutch language newspaper source: Has anyone a English language source confirming this?-- fdewaele, 6 February 2014, 18:27 CET

Semi-protected edit request on 27 October 2022[edit]

Section: Founding Amarna

Please change: "The event Egyptologists know the most about during Akhenaten's life are connected with founding Akhetaten" --> "The events" (plural, to match "are").

Error in Nebty-name[edit]

In both the nebty-names in this article, 'nesut' should be 'nesyt' because of the two reed leafs. (Gardiners M17) See f.i. or Darrell Baker, The encyclopedia of the egyptian pharaohs, p13 (although here the wr is forgotten or miswritten as wsr in the nebty-names).
