Egyptianizing Figurines from Delos: A Study in Hellenistic Religion

The present study investigates questions of religious syncretism and household cult through an interdisciplinary study of terracotta figurines of Egyptian deities found at Delos, an important Hellenistic Greek port of trade. A comparison of the figurines' iconography to parallels in Egyptian religious texts, temple reliefs, and ritual objects reveals that many of the figurines depict deities or rituals associated with the festival of the Inundation. Furthermore, an analysis of the figurines' clay fabrics and manufacturing techniques suggests that the vast majority of the Egyptianizing...

Holy Wandering: The Worlding of the Alexander Romance

For over a millennium and a half—from c. 250 BCE to c. 1450 CE—the single most popular work of fiction in the world was the network of closely related texts that contemporary scholars call the "Alexander Romance." From its joint origins in Ptolemaic Egypt and Roman Greece, the Alexander Romance proliferated vigorously, first around the Mediterranean, then concomitantly east and north across Eurasia, as well as south¬ward into Ethiopia and sub-Saharan Africa. By 1400, virtually every language of culture from the Malay Peninsula to Spain and Timbuktu to Iceland possessed its own version of...

Koch, I. 2016. Notes on Three South Canaanite Sites in the el-Amarna Correspondence. Tel Aviv 43: 91–98.

The author addresses three geographical issues that emerge from the el-Amarna correspondence, all related to south Canaan: the identification of Yurza and Bit-NIN.URTA and the location of a coastal polity between Ashkelon and Jaffa. He suggests placing Yurza at Tel Haror, Bit-NIN.URTA at Deir el-Azar (biblical Kiriath-jearim) and identifying Yavne-Yam (Muhhazu) as a center of a south Canaanite city-state.

Inhumations privées dans la nécropole de Pépy Ier

La nécropole de Pépy Ier est aujourd'hui connue essentiellement pour les complexes funéraires du roi et des reines de la VIe dynastie. Pourtant, de nombreux particuliers sont venus là pratiquer leurs dévotions et, pour certains, s'y faire inhumer, constituant ainsi ce qui apparaît comme un véritable lieu de mémoire. Trois grandes phases se distinguent, qui témoignent de l'évolution de cette nécropole royale, dans sa perception et son occupation. L'Ancien et le Moyen Empires se caractérisent par une continuité de l'activité rituelle dans le temple. Ensuite, jusqu'au Nouvel Empire au...
