Hieratic Texts from Tebtunis

This book contains a selection of hieratic texts from the ancient town of Tebtunis – hymns and litanies, rituals of protection, a mythological narrative, scholarly compositions, and documentary texts – as well as a survey of illustrated papyri.

Nearly all of the manuscripts are edited here for the first time, and many of the texts are hitherto unknown.
