The mask of Tutankhamon

English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

While appearing as a single word in modern Western languages, the name actually consists of three Egyptian words:

M17 Y5
N35
X1 G43 X1 S34

Twt-ˁnḫ-Jmn ("living image of Amon").

Alternative forms[edit]

We only know the letters mn of the last word in the name, as the Egyptians only wrote down consonants and no vowels in their writing system, so various people fill in various vowels.

Proper noun[edit]

Tutankhamon

  1. Egyptian Pharaoh known for his young age, for the restoration of Egyptian religion, and for being the only Pharaoh whose tomb was preserved intact to the modern age.
