Alexander the Great and Cleomenes of Naucratis in an Egyptian Hieroglyphic Source? (On the Interpretation of the Autobiographical Inscription from the tomb of Wennefer at Saqqara)

The article proposes an interpretation of the autobiographical inscription from the tomb of Wennefer, son of Painmu, at Saqqara, dating back to the 4th century B.C. This source is preserved in fragments and published only partly. According to its earlier and still undisputed interpretation by Fr. von Kaenel, it describes the adventures of an Egyptian nobleman contemporary to Dynasty XXX; having come to disfavor under Tachos (ca. 361/0-359/8 B.C.), he later went to this king to his army fighting the Persians, appeared somehow at the court of the Great King (Artaxerxes II or III), and, after...

Functional Ethnicity Or, How to Describe the Societies of Ancient Palestine?, UF 47, 2016, 191-203

Social studies and anthropology, based on ethnographical research, take for granted the role of large populous groups in defining ethnicity. Self-definitions of the group, as well as definition by others, are interpreted as the central issues regarding large groups. The paper aims to argue for the key-role of elite groups in self-identification and ethnic creation. Small groups of elite, by defining their own "ethnicity" decided it for larger groups. This hypothesis will be tested and illustrated by test cases of ethnogenesis in Iron Age Palestine.
