that is called the 11th hour of the Amduat
Eleventh Hour - Atum-Re as time god - tomb of Tuthmosis III - ca. 1426 BCE.
Drawing by A.G. Shedid (digitally enhanced) - Hornung (1999).
The wings of the serpent called "Seer" are grasped by Atum, and above the scene are the two Eyes, the left (Lunar) and the right (Solar), pointing to the full restoration of Solar consciousness in this hour. The serpent resembles the form of the Sungod in the Cavern of Sokar (5th Hour), suggesting the process of renewal started then. The ten stars plus the goddess "time" sitting on a serpent indeed represents the individual hours which have already elapsed till now.
In the middle register, the bark of the Sun has the Aten or Sun-disk on the prow, guiding the Sungod. This clearly references the completed renewal of Re. All preparations for the imminent Sunrise are present. We see how the huge serpent "World-encircler" is carried in front of the Sun boat. All of this anticipates the final rejuvenation of Re.
To avert any treat to the dawn of Re, punishment is afflicted on the damned. In the lower register, they are burned in fiery pits. Their destruction is complete :
"Orders given by the person of this god to slaughter those who beat his father Osiris, i.e. the corpse of the enemies, the limbs of the dead, those who are upside down, hindered on going, and the shapes of the annihilated."
Amduat, 11th Hour, 779 - 781.
