B. Weill prints a long article on "the Hyksos and the national
revival in Egyptian tradition and in history," comparing the Manethonian
and other traditions preserved by the Greeks and Josephus, the Egyptian
traditional references, and finally the contemporary monuments. He con-
siders that a large part of the tradition is due to Egyptian phraseology in
describing ill times, and puts little faith in it. The Apepy-Apophis family
he views as an Egyptian dynasty worshipping Set in Tanis and triumphing
over Upper Egypt. Associated in some way with these were the Khyan
group of Semitic truly " Hyksos " kings, who had probably been invited
to aid the Tanites, and Khyan himself ruled all Egypt as Auserre Apepi had
done. The discussion of the traditions and the other documents is very
full and contains many ingenious remarks. Journ. Asiatique, xme ser.
