The Tebtunis temple library is the only ancient Egyptian temple library of which substantial remains are preserved - by far the richest, single source of Egyptian literary texts. This volume contains a selection of demotic texts: a theological treatise, manuals on dream interpretation, a manual on birth prognosis, three lists of professions and plants, a list recording the titles of twenty cultic treatises, new fragments of the Great Demotic Book of Wisdom text and an astronomical text. It further includes an illustration from a manual on the pantheistic Bes and three fragments of demotic narrative of unknown origin. None of the papyri have previously been edited.

Table of Contents
