Amenhotep IV's lesser-known revolution

Shown here is one of the new stone toilet seats promoted during his reign, a reign which was apparently characterized by unusually good sanitary conditions in the palace as well as many non-royal houses.

I admit that I found myself wondering whether the hole in the middle of this toilet seat, in addition to its obvious functional purpose, was intended to symbolize the sun god Aten.
