Abstract

The study of the classifier [unknown] which is the miniature pictorial representation of the Amarna god, explicitly confirms the assumption that this image which reigns over all Amarna monuments as the sole representation of the god, is rather the depiction of the "energy of light" than the depiction of any form of the sun. The [unknown] classifier, known only in the Amarna period corpus, "breaks into words "the pictorial representation of the god of Amarna. The words that form the category it classifies are: rays, illuminate, rise, shine, "appear in glory."
