During the campaign of
Amunhotep II in the year of nine a curious event took place that might be
interpreted as death by burning prisoners. The possibility of this brutal
treatment raises the question of the status of war-prisoners. This study gives
particular attention to the lexicography of skr-'nh, the symbol of the
complete and permanent submission as a possible form of captivity. Not just in
the Memphis Stela but among the sources of Eighteenth Dynasty many examples
have appeared that put the question of the treatment of prisoners in a
different, new light.
