A Devastated Foreign Landscape Depicted in Luxor Temple

Abstract

A relief of Ramesses II located on the exterior western wall of the Processional Colonnade Hall of Luxor Temple portrays a devastated landscape surrounding an unnamed town. Analysis of the vegetation represented in this relief may indicate the general location of the unnamed town and is of interest to our understanding of Egyptian military interaction with the area—possibly indicating the time of year the town was destroyed.
