History in the Making
When Ramses II came to visit me and Thoth, we wrote down everything about the meeting. I also put a copy on Ra's tree, so he could read it and make comments when he showed up! [Drawing of a carved relief of Ramses II being recorded by Ra, Seshat, and Thoth, late New Kingdom/Dynasty 19 (ca. 1250BCE)]


Catching up with the Leaves
I almost forgot to write this down! Good thing there are lots of leaves. [Drawing of Seshat writing on the ished-tree, probably late New Kingdom (ca. 1300-1100BCE)]


At the Office
Just writing down everything that's ever happened. NBD. [Drawing of a carved relief of Seshat, Old Kingdom/Dynasty 5, reign of Sahure (ca. 2475BCE).]


Marking Out Ramses' Years
He should be happy I let him live so long! [Carved relief of Seshat marking her palm frond, late New Kingdom/Dynasty 19, reign of Ramses II (ca. 1250BCE)]
