D. Sweeney, "Egyptian Objects from Beersheva," in: Z. Herzog and L. Singer-Avitz (eds.), Beer-Sheba III. The Early Iron IIA Enclosed Settlement and the Late Iron IIA-Iron IIB Cities, Tel Aviv, 2016, 1062–1074.

This chapter, written for Zeev Herzog's publication of his Iron IIA-B excavations at Tel Beersheva, describes four Egyptian faience amulets, the rim of a vessel made of Egyptian blue, five Egyptian and locally-made Egyptian-style ceramic vessels, and a large sherd engraved with the name of the goddess Nephthys. Egyptian, and subsequently Nubian, interests in Judah in the late eighth century BCE may have led to a modest increase in trade between Egypt and Judah.

Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic

This work critically examines every one of the spells and rites translated in Hans Dieter Betz's "Greek Magical Papyri in Translation" and Daniel & Maltomini's "Supplementum Magicum" (plus texts drawn from a number of other lamellae, amulets, etc) with a view to identifying the precise magical technique used in each case. This categorisation is done on the basis of the original Greek or Demotic headwords or key words rather than upon the translation or later imprecise descriptions. The result is an identification of 40+ magical techniques such as autoptos, systasis, agoge, niketikon,...

Weeping Figurines: Function and Symbolism of some Rare Mourning Records Found Inside Ancient Egyptian Tombs

Mourning and weeping were an essential part of the ancient Egyptian ritual of rebirth, due to their mythical background. Rare figurines found inside tombs appear to confirm the desire to maintain this practice, in addition to the well-known painted or relief evidence. Recovered examples, dating back to at least the Middle Kingdom and up to the Greco-Roman period, show the typical mourning attitudes suggestive of grief. These objects were probably buried next to the deceased, to guarantee everlasting mourning.
