Variable of the Day, Ancient Egypt: Flanking apron


Temple of Ramses III at Medinet Habu

NOTE: This designation refers to royal aprons that have two uraei at the base, flanking the bottom and usually facing out.  This particular example also shows ribbons (red and blue, when preserved in color) on ether side of the apron–these elements are recorded separately.
