Egypt's king, Ramses II, written about in the Old
Testament, is now thought to have reigned between 1290-1224 B.C.E. The
Egyptian wall art to the right depicts Ramses holding what is suspected to
be three slaves. One is black, one appears to be East Asian, and the
third, in the foreground, appears to be Semitic. The blacks and
Semite came from close by. The East Asian leaves us wondering.
