Variable of the Day, Ancient Egypt: Manacled foe

Temple of Ramses III at Medinet Habu

NOTE: In addition to other differentiators (race, costume, etc.), foes are considered Aggressive, Bound, Controlled (grasped in the hand/underfoot vs. tied), or Manacled.  Manacles are not terribly common, but appear to have been used for the leaders.  This manacle is plain, but other examples at Medinet Habu are in the  shape of a lion.
