An Egyptian ankh necklace
Many have hypothesized that the ankh is a representation of Egypt itself. The upper part would be the Nile delta and the vertical section below the Nile itself. Moreover, the two horizontal arms would represent the Libyan desert in the west and the Arabian desert in the east;
A pendant from ancient Egypt
According to the writings of the Egyptian priest Manetho (second century BC), the line of pharaohs in ancient Egypt was divided into thirty successive dynasties beginning with the Narmer-Menes, the unifier of Egypt.
According to its legend, the king Narmer-Menes is supposed to have unified the two kingdoms of Upper and Lower Egypt around 3200 BC in a battle in which he emerged victorious.
In reality, the transition to a unified state certainly took place more gradually than ancient Egyptian writers would like us to believe. More of that, there is no clear evidence of this happening in Narmer-Menes's time.
