Demotic Literary Texts from Tebtunis and Beyond

With Contributions by J. F. Quack and Kim Ryholt
The Tebtunis temple library is the only ancient Egyptian temple library of which substantial remains are still preserved. It is by far the richest single source of Egyptian literary texts. This book contains a wide selection of demotic texts from its stores that have never previously been brought together in an edited volume, including a theological treatise; manuals on dream interpretation and one on birth prognosis; several lists of professions, plant life, and titles of cultic treatises; newly discovered fragments of the Great Demotic Book of Wisdom; and an astronomical text. 

500 pages | 2 volumes, 70 halftones | 11 5/8 x 16 1/2
