On the priest of the ka and the choachyte. Eevillout, Rev. Egyptologique,
The French Institute of Archaeology in Cairo has begun a new series of
publications under the title Bibliotheque d'etude, in which the standard
and most interesting texts will be edited for students, with translations,
notes and glossary. The first volume has been issued, Les Memoires de
Sinouhit, containing the story of Sinuhe, edited in hieroglyphic transcription
by Prof. Maspero. The Berlin text is given as the standard, with a
restoration of the beginning from other sources, while the five subsidiary
texts, including Mr. Gardiner's very valuable fragment from the Eames-
seum papyri, are printed in an appendix. Curiously enough all the
recently discovered texts—the Ramesseum papyrus, the Cairo ostracon,
the Golenischeff papyrus, and the small fragments in Lord Amherst's
collection (which belong to the Berlin papyrus)—contain portions of the
beginning, and are of much greater value for the restoration of the text
than the two very inferior ostraca which alone M. Maspero had to aid him
in his first transcription published more than thirty years ago.
