Just thought this was very interesting.- from Jeanie Brown

Aten was the sun-disk, the body in which the essence of the divine being was made visible. He rose to prominence in the reign of Amenhotep IV, who thought of himself as the embodiment of Aten. The king changed his  name from Amenhotep ('Amun-is-satisfied') to  Akhenaten ('Glorified-Spirit-of-the-Aten'), and   designed an iconography in which Aten was depicted as a sun-disk with rays ending in hands.    Akhenaten and his wife, Nefertiti, created a new city, Amarna (Horizon-of-Aten).
