See Wilson, “Egyptian Historical Texts,” ANET, for the Carnarvon tablet and Karnak stele, p. 232f; for the new stele, probably a continuation of the former, p. 554f. For further texts, see Donald B. Redford, History and Chronology of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt (Toronto: Univ. of Toronto Press, 1967), p. 36.
