Pistol: “……'Amenemhet beholds the perfection of Re'

Shouldn't it be read from top to bottom? 'Re behold(s?) the perfection of Amenemhet'


The ‘Winged Sun-Disc’ protection motif hovers over the vertical inscription:

Two eyes sign, I40 - ideogram for ‘see’, ‘look.’
Heart and windpipe sign, F35 x 3 (nfrw), ‘beauty’
Sun sign, N5 (ra) located between the king’s birth and throne names.

The king’s birth name (imn m Hat – ‘Amun is foremost’) is to the left, and throne name (ni mAat ra – ‘The one who belongs to the maat of Ra’) to the right of the sun sign.


From top down and to the right and left:

Seeing the beauty of the Sun - Dual King Nimaatra given life forever, son of the Sun, Amenemhat, given life forever.

Or:

The Dual King, Nimaatra, given life forever, ‘Son of the Sun’ Amenemhat, given life forever, sees the beauty of the Sun.
