Description

By Jean-Claude Goyon

Dating from 320 B.C., the papyrus of Imouths, son of Psintas, is one of the longest complete papyri of Egyptian ritual texts in existence. It was given to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1935 by Edward S. Harkness. A number of Egyptologists have worked on the sometimes difficult texts hidden in its elegant hieratic script, but this is its first complete publication. The author, Jean-Claude Goyon, Professor of Egyptology at the University of Lyon, is one of the world's experts on Egyptian texts of this period. The book, which is in French, includes translation and commentary, and a complete photographic publication of the papyrus with hieroglyphic transcription.
