The earliest depiction of the 'aten' as Aten can be found on a monument dedicated to
Amenhotep II at Giza.

Here we can see the winged sun disc embracing the royal cartouche with its outstretch-
ed arms.

During the rule of Thutmose IV the Aten is said to be in the vanguard of the army, which
place was usually occupied by Amun.

Next we find that Amenhotep III most likely had a temple to Aten constructed and a priest-
hood installed at Heliopolis. Further, he held courtiers with titles like Hatiay, 'scribe of the
two granaries of the Temple of Aten in Men-Nefer (Memphis)'.

Also the palace of Amenhotep at Malkata bore the name 'Splendour of Aten' and 'Per Hay'
(home of rejoicing).
