At times it is very difficult to determine with tiny seal engravings what is
being represented. The rectangular shape under Pharaoh's throne which I
thought "might be" a chest could also conceivably represent legs constructed
rather like a wooden picture frame for strength, in which case the area
inside the frame would be open space and NOT a chest. I just recently came
across such an example of a portable throne for Pharaoh Akhenaten and I have
added this illustration to my website, with a cautionary note. If interested
please cf. the following url and scroll down to the end of the article for
the update.
