Variable of the Day, Ancient Egypt: Receiving from deity
Temple of Seti I at Abydos
NOTE: This variable covers the action of any element being given to the king. There are both active (where he actually grasps or cups the item) and passive (where he does not make physical contact) versions of this variable. The gods usually are conferring emblems of power, as in this example where Seti receives symbols of his right to rule, or hand weapons (usually the khepesh, or scimitar, sword) to the king as a command to carry out a military campaign.
