During the campaign of Amunhotep II in the year of nine a curious event took place that might be interpreted as death by burning prisoners. The possibility of this brutal treatment raises the question of the status of war-prisoners. This study gives particular attention to the lexicography of skr-'nh, the symbol of the complete and permanent submission as a possible form of captivity. Not just in the Memphis Stela but among the sources of Eighteenth Dynasty many examples have appeared that put the question of the treatment of prisoners in a different, new light.
