At last Tutmosis, impatient and alarmed, decided on a conversation with the Theban nomarch.
Then perhaps she would not become the mistress of the nomarch?
The nomarch had had it locked up in the neighbouring temple of the goddess.
“I do not understand this,” said the nomarch of Aa, almost in anger.
“Such is the fate of a ruler in this world,” said the nomarch.
The strategist, with his officers, the nomarch of the district with his subordinates, and many citizens of Tennis had arrived.
Both dignitaries consented, and the nomarch exhibited so much piety that the prince was astonished.
He must, he assured them, take the culprit to Sais and deliver him over to the nomarch for punishment.
The nomarch shaded his eyes with his hand, his neck became red.
"The successor of such a father will find it difficult to secure universal approbation," said the nomarch.
