During the New Kingdom (ca. 1550–1077 BCE) and especially from the mid-18th Dynasty onwards, relations between Egypt and Ḫatti played a key-role in the historical, political and cultural development of the then Syria-Palestine region. It is the aim of this article to discuss the development of these relations based on textual evidence presented in the Egyptian material, with special attention given to a series of bilateral parity treaties concluded between the respective rulers of Ḫatti and Egypt.
