Seshat, Thoth and the Persea Tree

Reconstruction of a partially destroyed wall relief from the Ramesseum, the mortuary temple dedicated to Ramesses II in Thebes dating from the 19th Dynasty.
The scene depicts the deities Atum, Seshat and Thoth inscribing the name of Rameses into the fruit of the persea, the sacred tree of Heliopolis. By doing this the gods are guaranteeing Rameses an everlasting reign and innumerable jubilees.
