My recently submitted PhD thesis focused on the creation and display of identity in the texts of the 5th century BCE Kushite ruler, Amannote-erike. This poster provides a brief introduction to Amannote-erike and his reign. This will be followed by an analysis of his creation and display of his persona within his monumental texts, which established his identity as king. The significance of Amannote-erike’s perception of this identity, and his creation and exhibition of his identity both as an individual, and within the continuum of Kushite kingship, are especially relevant to this presentation.
