Amenhotep III’s “Aegean List,” found on a statue base at his mortuary temple at Kom el- Hetan nearly fifty years ago, is critical for the studyof Egypto- Aegean relations during the Late Bronze Age. This article reconsiders the Aegean List’s toponyms and possible function in light ofrecent archaeological discoveries made at the site as well as the publication of a recently updated version of Elmar Edel’s classic volume on thesubject. Among the most important insights in the latter study is the realization that three of the Aegean List’s names were recarved at somepoint. This article weighs the possibility that the inscription reflects the itinerary of an Egyptian expedition to the Aegean region and raisesquestions about its proper interpretation.
