Rameses Great Horses
After the Battle - by Amelia B. Edwards
AFTER THE BATTLE
In this section of the great tableau the Egyptian artist depicts the incidents of the battle-field after the victory is won.
We see the charioteers and infantry returning in order, and the enemy's cattle being driven to the camp.

Long files of prisoners are brought along, some tied together by the neck, others with their arms bound behind their backs.

In the lowest register a captain of archers brings in a string of eight captives, and is greeted by his comrades with acclamations.

In the second register, to the right, Rameses sits in his chariot with his back to the horses
and witnesses the counting of the hands of the slain, while three scribes enter the numbers on their tablets.

RAMESES, ENTHRONED, RECEIVING THE CONGRATULATIONS OF HIS OFFICERS AFTER THE VICTORY.
