Product Description

In continuation of the demotic votive inscriptions collected in Short Texts Volume I, this volume brings together some 650 demotic and Greek-demotic mummy labels. These are in principle all labels published to date, but this number also contains some fifty unpublished labels as well as some fifty of which only the Greek, not the demotic side had been published previously. Of some two-hundred labels from which the names had been excerpted for use in our onomastic repertoria, the complete text is here published for the first time. In order to enhance the usefulness of this volume, also the demotic inscriptions on mummy linen, coffins, mummy boards and mummy masks, as well as those on the containers of mummified fauna and a number of small funerary papyri are included in this volume, some 260 texts in all. Thus the funerary theme has been treated fairly completely for the demotic texts, except for the demotic funerary stelae which will make up a separate Short Texts volume of their own. The volume is of course completed by Concordances with previous editions and by full Word Indices. Five Appendices treat of various textual, onomastic and palaeographic problems chiefly concerning the mummy labels, which bring new insights in these domains for the Roman period.
