Stela of Ramesses II, 1261 BCE

Stela_of_Ramesses_IIA basalt Stela of Ramesses II dated to his Regnal Year 18 was discovered in secondary context in the Lower Level V northern temple at Tel Beth Shean.

The stela had apparently once been displayed alongside the Stela of Seti I and the Statue of Ramesses III.

The content of the stela inscription is purely poetic and honorific, referring to the generalised achievements of Ramesses II rather than to any specific campaign.
