Where's Amenia?


This is a statue of the last king of Egypt's ancient 18th Dynasty Horemheb from his Saqqara tomb seated next to his likely first wife Amenia and sadly this is what it looks like today in Luxor.


The Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities has a number of objects they are looking for beside Amenia including 38 gold mainly Greco-Roman bracelets stolen since the 1970's.
