Hello haven`t been here for a long time,:)  however would like any info on these twins  statures.
 
 
Here`s some info on the statues. This site is saying they are a Double statue of Amenemhet 3 12th dynasty as Nile God, however as noted on the other site the dress is clearly of hyskos kings.

It was Psusennes 1 who around 1000 BCE had all these statues transported to Tanis and added his own cartouches to them.

The twin statues were not from Tanis.

I just would like to know who these twins figures are. They are classified by the egyptians as a Double statue of Amenemhet, 3 12th dynasty as a Nile God, however they are clearly of the Hyskos dress.

I can`t even find a nile god that was portrayed as twins.

There were many hyksos kings that ruled over the Delta region of Egypt for only little more than 100 years.Many of these ruled concurrently over different parts of the Delta.

Where would you have place these twin kings?

I know a lot of people think Plato `s Atlantis is just historical amusement , however there could be a few true facts.
 
Critias
This I infer because Solon said that the priests in their narrative of that war mentioned most of the names which are recorded prior to the time of Theseus, such as Cecrops, and Erechtheus, and Erichthonius, and Erysichthon,
 
According to the Marmor Parium the Cecropidean  Dinsty  was in 1582 bc  around the time of the Hyksos ( princes and kings of other countries ) and their war with lower Egypt.  Its odd that  Solon refers to the Atllantean  as princes and kings, who subjected the Egyptians to slavery, twins kings.
Just by looking at there statures one can see where Solon might have put this story into Greek form  and the worship of Posidon the  sea  fish God .
