Abstract The purpose of this paper is to review the relationships between Egypt and the Kingdom of Mitanni (also known as Naharin in Egyptian sources) during the reign of Amenhotep III, King of Egypt (c. 1390-1352 BCE), and Tushratta, King of Mitanni. It is commonly accepted that they were peaceful during the reign of Amenhotep III. However, reading texts carefully, deterioration in relations and even a short period of animosity between them can be observed, though relations soon improved. In this article I shall forward the evidence and suggest a reason for this animosity.
