D. Sweeney, "Hieratic Inscriptions from Lachish," in: D. Ussishkin (ed.), The Renewed Excavations at Lachish — 1973-1994, vol. III (Monograph Series of the Institute of Archaeology, Tel Aviv University 22), Tel Aviv, 2005, 1601-1617.

This article was written for the final report of the Tel Aviv University Institute of Archaeology at Lachish, and includes all the Ramesside hieratic inscriptions known from that site: a complete bowl, probably from the reign of Ramesses III, and nine fragments. The bowl lists substantial amounts of grain, probably related to the harvest tax, which is also mentioned in the text. Several of the other pieces may also be related to taxation, but they are too fragmentary to be certain. The article concludes with a brief survey of Egyptian taxation and hieratic writing in Canaan. I have often...

Riot in Alexandria

This innovative study uses one well-documented moment of violence as a starting point for a wide-ranging examination of the ideas and interactions of pagan philosophers, Christian ascetics, and bishops from the fourth to the early seventh century. Edward J. Watts reconstructs a riot that erupted in Alexandria in 486 when a group of students attacked a Christian adolescent who had publicly insulted the students' teachers. Pagan students, Christians affiliated with a local monastery, and the Alexandrian ecclesiastical leaders all cast the incident in a different light, and each group tried...

Ancient Necromancy: Fact or Fiction?

In this contribution I look at ancient necromancy, both regarding its practices and its literary representations. I pay special attention to the vocabulary of necromancy, which enables us to see its different stages in the course of antiquity.

Child and Infant Burials in New Kingdom Egypt: A Gurob Case Study

This thesis is a re-evaluation of commonly held assumptions on child and infant burials. It challenges the bias that often exists in the discussion of these individuals. In particular, the mortuary remains of non-elite children and infants are viewed by some researchers as crude burials, containing very few grave goods. According to this view they represent little economic outlay, were often interred elsewhere because of their lack of integration within their community, and were sometimes disposed of like garbage. To re-evaluate these views, a case study is undertaken of 127 non-elite...
