Using Reconstruction Technology, This is the Face of the Richest Pharaoh who is Considered the God of the Egyptian Nation.

Dream - Using advanced digital reconstruction technology, the face of Amenhotep III has finally been unveiled after 3,400 years. The name Amenhotep III is famous as one of the wealthiest pharaohs of all time. This legendary pharaoh was even considered a god by the ancient Egyptians. However, the depiction of Amenhotep III as a powerful pharaoh resembling a god does not match his physical appearance.

After undergoing digital reconstruction, Amenhotep III turned out to be a short, fat pharaoh with a bald head.

"The Greatest and Richest Pharaoh"

Translated text: According to The Sun, Wednesday, May 21, 2024, archaeologists describe Amenhotep III as one of the richest individuals who ever lived in the world. Amenhotep III's wealth was accumulated during his reign, which lasted from 1386 to 1349 BC. Leading in 1386 BC, Amenhotep led the ancient Egyptian kingdom through a period of prosperity and unprecedented international power.

One of the greatest evidence of its fame in Egypt is the numerous statues scattered throughout its kingdom, more than any other pharaoh.

"Until now, Amenhotep III has been portrayed as a majestic and wealthy figure. However, he is the only pharaoh whose face has never been reconstructed until now. Finally, a multinational team revealed the truth about how Amenhotep III's face actually looked like through digital reconstruction using skull data from his mummy."

The reconstruction process begins by digitally recreating the skull using images and data from the discovered mummy. Brazilian graphic expert, Cicero Moraes, then adds additional data to configure the possible positions and sizes of the nose, ears, eyes, and lips. "Based on historical knowledge, Amenhotep III had a strong appearance, which is why we used data from an individual with a high body mass index," said Moraes.

"Even the Clothes and Accessories are Also Reconstructed Again"

"Even the clothing and accessories of the pharaoh were included in this reconstruction, which is considered one of the most complete ever done. 'We are amazed by the final result, seeing the statue complete with these colors and the serene face is very satisfying. This is our gift to everyone who appreciates history,' said Moraes."

However, the final result of the digital reconstruction turned out to be far from what people expected regarding the figure considered a god by the ancient Egyptians.

"Short and Far from the Portrait of a God, Pharaoh"

"Although he was one of the true great pharaohs of Egypt, his height was only about 156 cm. This makes him one of the smallest preserved mummies," said Archaeologist Michael Habicht from Flinders University, Australia. In addition, research from the 1970s describes Amenhotep III as a fat, sick, and inactive man."

"Amenhotep III is depicted as a man who is almost bald and suffers from dental problems in the last years of his life. 'This small stature is not reflected in his famous artworks with his large statues,' added Habicht."

"One of the Richest Pharaohs"

"Amenhotep III first ascended the throne at the age of 12 and is estimated to have died between the ages of 40 and 50. Based on letters sent by foreign diplomats, Amenhotep III's extraordinary wealth was revealed. These diplomatic letters contain requests for Amenhotep III to give gold as gifts."

"Gold in Egypt Abundant as Sand in the Era of Amenhotep III"

In one of the letters, the foreign diplomat did not hesitate to mention "abundant gold like sand in Egypt". "Perhaps that is an exaggerated language for a letter like that, but it still implies his extraordinary wealth," said Habicht.

According to the news, the mummy of Amenhotep III was entirely coated in gold. Thus, he appeared like a statue of a god. Besides being known as an extremely wealthy pharaoh, Amenhotep III is believed to be a playboy due to having many wives.
