Funerary equipment belonging to three foreign wives of King Thutmose III.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art showes here one of the most comprehensive surviving sets of ancient Egyptian jewelry.

It was dicovered, together with vessels and other objects, in a rock cut cave, situated high up in the desert mountain cliffs of the Wady Gabbanat el-Qurud in western Thebes.

The names of the three wives are Maruta, Manhata and Manuwai.
