Amanislo

Amanislo

Amanislo was a king of Kush around 250 BC. He had the throne name Ankhbeferibre.

Amanislo is only known from his pyramid at Meroe (S 6) and from an inscription on a lion figure. The figure belonged originally to the Egyptian king Amenhotep III. From the position of his pyramid it has been argued that he was the successor of king Arrakkamani. There is a column drum, found at Semna perhaps providing his name, although the reading is uncertain.

Amanislo appears as Amonasro, King of Ethiopia in Verdi's Aida, following the scenario written by Auguste Mariette.
