All Things Egypt

" my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues, and gold - everywhere the glint of gold. For the moment - an eternity it must have seemed to the others standing by - I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, 'Can you see anything?' it was all I could do to get out the words, 'Yes, wonderful things.'" -Howard Carter

What is the meaning of the Name 'Cleopatra?'

That’s a tough one. Well cleopatra is actually a Greek name (cause queen cleopatra was not Egyptian but was Greek). From what I’ve read, the first part of her name comes from the Greek word kleos meaning glory. I believe the next part is a reference to paternity or father. This would make sense because in Greek culture glory, or kleos, was inherited and if ur father had great kleos, tht was something u could brag about.
