In the last years archaeological missions working in Sudan have been shining light on the ruling period of the Meroitic king Amanikhareqerem, whose name was only known from few objects until the end of the last century. Recently discovered temples bound to him in Naga and el-Hassa, made from different materials and techniques according to local availability and climate conditions, have especially improving our knowledge of the Meroitic kingdom. Both buildings highlight the coexistence of strong Egyptian influx and Nubian traditions in plan, artistic and devotional context.
Furthermore, new epigraphic dates, in addition to the iconographical program of the Naga temple, have offered new elements to the controversial dating of Amanikhareqerem and to the Meroitic pantheon, especially regarding the autochtonous god Aritene.
