Akhenaton tries to remove Egypt's old gods from memory, removing the name of Amun from writings and monuments around the country. This goes as far as even defacing his own father's name wherever it occurs. Despite this, when he dies, Atenism seems to go with him. Artisans, bureaucrats, and priests return to Thebes as if Amarna never existed.
