Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, August 18, 2016: Aten page (Aten, also spelled Aton: jtn in Egyptian; is the disk of the sun in ancient Egyptian mythology, and originally an aspect of the god Ra. The deified Aten is the focus of the religion of Atenism established by Amenhotep IV, who later took the name Akhenaten ... in worship and recognition of Aten. The worship of Aten was eradicated by Horemhab; Egyptologists have vocalized the word variously as Aten, Aton, Atonu, and Itn)
