Publisher Description

Catalogue des ostraca hieratiques non litteraires de Deir el-Medineh, vol. 9: nos. 831-1000. By PIERRE GRANDET. Documents de Fouilles de l'IFAO, vol. 41. Cairo: INSTITUT FRANCAIS D'ARCHEOLOGIE ORIENTALE, 2003. Pp. xix + 448, illus. (paper). This volume represents the second welcome result of the author's laudable initiative to resume the publication of the non-literary ostraca found during the French excavations at the site of Deir el-Medina, continuing the series of fascicles published by J. Cerny and S. Sauneron between 1935 and 1970. In an exemplary format, 170 administrative documents are made accessible not only to the Deir el-Medina "experts," but also to the world of Egyptology in general. Of these, only some forty texts had already been more or less known through the (mostly unpublished) transcriptions in the famous notebooks of J. Cerny.
