The heiroglyph "Keftiu"

The heiroglyph "Keftiu" is named in the Cartouche (oval enclosure below the figure). The figure is one of nine figues, "The Nine Bows" (which vary) Here each of the Nine Bows are depicted the same way, a Syrian type is repeated nine times not a Keftiu but intended here to represent a generic foreign enemy. Below each of these nine generic foreigners is a different heiroglyphic name of a foreign enemy. This photo was taken at II. Ramses' Temple at Abydos, on the NW corner of the peristyle yard
