AbstractAMENHOTEP III's first sed-festival (ca. 1370 B.C.) is mentioned in a large number of dockets from Malqata as well as in the tombs of Kheruef and Khaemhet, the funerary tem- ple of Amenhotep son of Hapu, the temple of Khonsu at Karnak, and in Soleb. In the temple of Soleb, among the various scenes in relief summarizing the ritual that was performed for the occasion, there is one scene that is accompanied by an inscription with a legal and ad- ministrative content. The text is arranged in columns, and the first one is placed just before a figure of a king sitting on a litter; he is wearing the Upper Egyptian crown and holding in his hand the flagellum and the heqa-scepter. The inscription is badly damaged, but some sections can still be read. The missing parts can be restored by referring to an inscription in Osorkon II's temple at Bubastis. The latter commemorates Osorkon's first sed-festival, celebrated in the twenty-second year of his reign (ca. 865 B.C.), in the fourth month of Akhet. Despite the geographical and chronological distance between the two inscriptions, there are only minor differences between them.
