Le «dieu» nubien Sésostris III.

This article provides evidence for the veneration of Sesostris III in Nubia after his death. The documents gathered herein are classified in geographical order: South to North, from Gebel Docha to Amada. During the New Kingdom – especially the second half of the XVIIIth dynasty – Sesostris III was considered a true local Nubian God: chapels and temples were dedicated to him, he is shown giving life to New Kingdom Pharaohs, his speech is preceded by ḏd-mdw jn like other divinities, etc. While the veneration of Sesostris III is attested to by evidence found in thirteen Nubian sites, Semna, Kumma, and Ouronarti seem to be the most important centers for his cult in Nubia.
