The Tomb of Si Amon
Si-Amon in the presence of Egyptian deities. A vulture hovers over his head - a sign of royal status. Also notice the empty cartouches. During Persian times highly placed Egyptian officials did not hesitate to use royal insignia and cartouches to agrandize themselves to the public, later, during Ptolemaic times, this practice was not acceptable and officials began to have empty cartouches painted in their tombs in the expectation that artists after their death would fill in their names. That they remained empty shows probably that after their death the artists had no more interest in doing so. In revised view Si Amon was active from about 295-272 BC, as we explain at length through this series of images and texts.
