The Aegean List, inscribed on the pedestal of a statue from the mortuary temple of the Egyptian pharaoh Amenophis III (1391–1353 B.C.), consists of place names that may have formed an itinerary for Egyptian vessels trading in the Aegean. Or it may have recorded a specific royal expedition, sent to several Aegean ports (Knossos, Mycenae and possibly Troy) by Amenophis III. Unfortunately, the pedestal with its list has been lost since 1977.
