"My friend Kenon said it was to crush our enemies, and to hear the lamentations of their women."

Kenon was an Egyptian friend of Khemu, the son of the Medjay of Siwa, Bayek, who lived in the mid-1st century BCE.[1]

Once, when Khemu raised the question "what is best in life" to Kenon, the latter responded that it was to vanquish one's enemies to the anguish of their women. Khemu later reported this violent answer to his father when presenting the same query to him, to which Bayek reminded him that they were Medjay, not barbarians.[1]
