During documentation of the offering scenes decorating the Chapel of Hatshepsut (the so-called Southern Hall of Offerings) in the mortuary temple of the queen at Deir el-Bahari, on some vessels represented among piled offerings on the upper part of its north wall, deep gouges typical for the iconoclasm of the Amarna period have been observed. Closer examination revealed similar traces of deliberate destruction also on depictions of other pottery forms, recorded on blocks attributed to the scene in question in its eastern section. It is interesting to remark that the described erasures have been noted (with only one exception) exclusively on the north wall of the Chapel, while all the vessels depicted in the corresponding area of the south wall bear no such traces. The aim of the paper is an attempt at reconstructing inscriptions placed on the vessels in question on the basis of similar representations coming from the other parts of Djeser-djeseru, the actual inscribed vessels known from the archaeological context and th depictions of similar artifacts found in some Eighteenth Dynasty tombs of the nobles.
