  1. >I read the article, but it is unclear what the mean by a cartouche. Simply put, a cartouche is the name of the king written inside an oval. There are cartouches of Seti I all over the walls of the tomb. After all, it is his tomb. Why would one more be news?


  2. >Kevin,Thank you for this observation. When I read the article, I thought the cartouch (which is the name of the king, as you indicate) had been found for the first time.I am going to to some research and find out whether the name of Seti I has appeared before in another place.Thank you for calling my attention to this important fact.Claude Mariottini
