326290 Akhenaten           Discovered 1998 Apr. 21 by R. A. Tucker at Goodricke-Pigott.
Akhenaten was a pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died in 1336 or 1334 BC. He attempted to replace the polytheistic religion of Egypt with a monotheistic worship of the Aten, the visible surface of the Sun.
