Object description

The Small Aten Temple is located in the ancient city of Akhetaten . It is one of the two major temples in the city, the other being the Great Temple of the Aten. It is situated next to the King's House and near the Royal Palace, in the central part of the city. Original known as the Hwt-Jtn or Mansion of the Aten, it was probably constructed before the larger Great Temple. Its only contemporary depiction is found in the tomb of Tutu . Like the other structures in the city, it was constructed quickly, and hence was easy to dismantle and reuse the material for later construction.
