Remember My Name - Circa - NCMA - North Carolina Museum of Art

Fefi was the overseer of the pyramid complex of King Pepy I at Saqqara; he was also a lector priest, nobleman, and scribe. With plenty of free time in his afterlife, Fefi blogs about hieroglyphs in the NCMA's Egyptian collection.

    Indeed, Fefi! Now your readers will understand why the names of certain rulers were erased from monuments… to obliterate them from history, depriving them of eternal life! That was the case with King Akhenaten and Queen Hatshepsut, for example. History is quirky, though, because the names were discovered millennia later. and both Akhenaten and Hatshepsut are now famous Egyptian pharaohs!

    Very glad to hear from you, Fefi, Sir. I guess it's pretty busy in the afterlife. It's very good of you to take the time to visit with us back here among the living.
