Notes on the Geography of Egypt: Karnak: Photo 19

world pictures Egypt: Karnak

On the same wall, Sety I, conqueror of the Hittites, smiles for posterity while driving prisoners back to Thebes as a gift to Amun-Ra. An inscription reads, "...he rejoices to begin battle, he is delighted to enter into it, his heart is satisfied at seeing blood, he cuts off the heads of the rebellious-hearted, he loves an hour of battle more than a day of rejoicing. His majesty slays them one at a time. He leaves not a limb among them, and he that escapes his hand as a living captive is carried off to Egypt." (Weeks, p. 87.)
