Description: The “Gold Throne” (Carter object no. 91; Cairo JE 62028) is one of the best-known objects from the tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62). It is also one of the more intriguing, since its backrest scene shows clear evidence of having been altered in antiquity. What were the nature and extent of these changes? And what light do they shed on the complexities of the later Amarna Period?

About the Speaker: Nicholas Reeves is the Lila Acheson Wallace Associate Curator of Egyptian Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
