Unfinished Stele of Amun Re
20th Dynasty, New Kingdom
Ramesside Period
c.1184-1070 BC
This unfinished stela from the Valley of the Kings depicts the barque of Amun-Re carried in procession. Below is a hymn to the god, recited by the scribe Amennakht, his son Pentwere, and the chief carpenter, Amenemope. The god was believed to give oracles during such processions by influencing the movements of the priests carrying the barque shrine. the coronation inscription on a statue in Turin, Italy , seems to indicate that such an oracle took place when the pharaoh Horemheb ascended to the throne.

Terracotta Lekythos (Oil flask)
c.550-530 BC
Attic Greek
This is the earliest and most complete known representation of an Attic wedding. The bridal couple with the best man behind them sit in a cart drawn by two donkeys. A mule cart with four guests follows. Other members of the procession are on foot. The woman in the lead holds two torches, indicating that the scene takes place at night. The procession heads toward the bridegroom’s house where a woman, probably the mother of the groom, awaits. The architecture of the house is carefully indicated; the white columns of the porch may be painted wood.

Newly discovered Byzantine mosaics show Amazons hunting, a rare scene in Amazon iconography, which usually depicts the warriors fighting battles. Here Queen Melanippe (whose name is written above her) attacks a lion with her lance. (Pasquale Sorrentino)
