Naughty Egyptian Graffiti

Senenmut taking Queen Hatshepsut from behind, Deir el Bahri 




This naughty little drawing might have merited the extreme displeasure of Hatshepsut had she seen it. But when was this pornographic cartoon made? Could it have been at the time of her successor, Thuthmose III? Or was it truly from the time of Hatshepsut with rumors rampant about her favored vizier, architect and tutor for her daughter Neferure? At any rate, it is pretty graphic and unsanctioned paving the way for my comments and images of Greek and Roman graffiti of phalluses and comments about women.
