AMUN (also Amon, Ammon, Amen) is the ancient Egyptian god of the sun and air. He is one of the most important gods of ancient Egypt who rose to prominence at Thebes at the beginning of the period of the New Kingdom (c.1570-1069 BCE). He is usually depicted as a bearded man wearing a headdress with a double plume or, after the New Kingdom, as a ram-headed man or simply a ram, symbolizing fertility in his role as Amun-Min. His name means “the hidden one,” “invisible,” “mysterious of form,” and unlike most other Egyptian gods, he was considered Lord of All who encompassed every aspect of creation.

The Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu is a New Kingdom period structure in the West Bank of Luxor. Aside from its size and architectural importance, it’s known as the source of inscribed reliefs depicting the advent and defeat of the Sea Peoples during the reign of Ramesses III.

The Sea Peoples are a purported seafaring confederation of groups known to have attacked Ancient Egypt prior to the Bronze Age Collapse. Since the creation of the concept in the 19th century, the various Sea Peoples have been proposed to have originated from either western Anatolia in now-Turkey or from southern Europe. Although archaeological inscriptions do not include reference to a migration, the Sea Peoples are conjectured to have sailed around the eastern Mediterranean and invaded Anatolia, Syria, Canaan, Cyprus, and Egypt toward the end of the Bronze Age. Hypotheses regarding the origin of the various groups remains the source of much speculation. Theories variously propose equating them with several Aegean tribes, raiders from central Europe, scattered soldiers who turned to piracy or had become refugees, and links with natural disasters such as earthquakes or climatic shifts.
