Summary

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

Contents include: Theological Treatise; Neue Kopenhagerner Fragments des großen demotischen Weisheitsbuches; Five Manuals on Dream Interpretation; A Ptolemaic Manual of Birth Prognosis for Mother and Child; A Narrative Featuring Kush and Golden Shrines; Three Demotic Onomastica: Occupations and Plants; New Fragments of an Astronomical Text.
