18th Dynasty columns

As indicated by isolated cartouches, these three 18th Dynasty columns were made for Tuthmosis IV. Some twohundred years later, they were usurped by Merenptah and Sethos II, and most of the cartouches name these kings. Much later, the columns were reused in the construction of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, where they now serve as supporting elements in rooms I and V.
