Hatshepsut - The Vatican

The Vatican Museums have a little piece of Hatshepsut history. They have a lovely commemorative stela featuring the Female Pharaoh and Thutmose III.

The Gregorian Egyptian Museum

This is, so far the first stela i have seen featuring Hatshepsut. I do not know what the Hieroglyphic script says, but it is interesting to see Hatshepsut in front of Thutmose III, in the more senior position, so i think it is fair to assume that the stela was commissioned by Hatshepsut.
