How is Psusennes II distinguished from Psusennes I in Manetho's epitome? Where there is Psusennes III, a person also given an independent reign??

What is the precise text of "associated names" of Psusennes "II" and his "successor", Shoshenq I in a graffito from tomb TT18(see A. Dodson,,"Psusennes II and Shoshenq I," JEA 79(1993), pp.267-268, and in an ostracon from Um el-Qaab(see J. Yoyotte, BSSFT 1(1988) 46 n.2.)???

What other thing than just the conventional chronology places Psusennes I's death to a time almost 40-45 years before Shoshenq I]'s appearance as Chief of the Ma???

What confirms that the second ruler intended to be mentioned on a well known Mummy bandage which equates "[Year X] of Amenemopet to Year 49 [of Psusennes I." is Psusennes and not another person altogether?? (unsigned comments by Shilkanni)

Psusennes I Nomen
in hieroglyphs

I updated his Nomen cartouche from the "Gold Disk" from Psusennes I tomb at Tanis, now in Egyptian Museum, Cairo. Gold disc is 16.6 cm, and was used to close the incision on the stomach. It bears the Eye of Horus, as a sign of "intactness", (Wholeness). (I do not know the significance of the twisted cord hieroglyph above the hieroglyph for town, intersection.) [ The Budge 2-volume dictionary implies it is the symbol related to the word "āntch" (long a)(= sound, healthy), and beneath the similar hieroglyph for goddess Neith ]. (The symbol for "N",wavy line does not work in the Cartouche(below star and above town) in Wiki; I originally had tried it. )(It does work here.)

Tomb discovery[edit]

Check whether the tomb was not discovered in 1939. JMK 10:13, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

According to the Silver Pharoah the the first group of tombs were found in 1939 but had been entered prevously, but the second group was found in early 1940 with Psusennes' tomb being entered on 21 February 1940. Ted (talk) 06:14, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
