    Hittites in Abu Simbel

    Hittites in Abu Simbel
    2 more images

    I was impressed by the story about the Battle of Kadesh between Egyptians and Hittites while visiting Abu Simbel in April of 2007.
    The reliefs on the north wall of the Grand Hall show scenes from the Battle of Kadesh. The sides of the thrones next to the entrance are decorated with Nile gods symbolically uniting Egypt, while below are prisoners, representing conquered nations, to the left, African and to the right, Asian-Hittites.
    At that very moment when I saw these reliefs I decided to visit Hattusas one day.

    The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts has one of the most representative collections in Russia of foreign art dated from ancient times to modern days.

    You may see Cappadokian Cuneiforms (from famous Golenishev’s collection), tablets and seals (the first half of the II millennium BC) and a wonderful Relief with the Hittites - Dynasty XX Sandstone (the New Kingdom).

    Istanbul Archaeology Museum Egypto-Hittite Treaty

    Egypto-Hittite Peace Treaty (c. 1258 BC) between Hattusili III and Ramesses II after the Battle of Kadesh is the best known early written peace treaty.

    The Kadesh peace agreement on the Cuneiform Tablet is on display at the Istanbul Archaeology Museum (and I’ve seen and took a photo there). It is believed to be the earliest example of any written international agreement of any kind.

    Formerly known as Bogazköy, this small town (basically one street of shops) sits in a rural area on the road from Çorum to Yozgat. Bogazkale is best known as the site of Hattusas and Yazilikaya.

    You may watch my high resolution photo of Hattusas on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 40º 1' 13.15" N 34º 36' 36.70" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Bogazkale .

    procession of 12 gods

    3km from hattusa

    the procession of 12 gods,an exceptionnally well preserved procession!
    following each other closely ,12 personages strictly identical suggest an idea of movement...rather rare to find on hittite reliefs.
