A coffin for King Tutankhamun of Egypt, weighs 110 kg of pure gold!

His tomb remained sealed for 3,000 years, which is impressive considering that tombs get raided by both foreigners and Egyptians.

Tutankhamen means “living image of Aten”, the name of the sun god.

@Jonathan Tutankhamen was named originally "Tutankhaten", as he was the only son of Akhenaten, the heretic pharao who believed that Aten was the only god. After his father's death, Tutankhaten restored the traditional egiptian religion and was renamed to Tutankhamun "The living image of Amun", the traditional egiptian god.

Sorry the impertinence. 😓​
