Synopsis

Fifteen 'slab stelae' and stela fragments were found set into the exterior walls of the Giza mastaba tombs from the reign of Khufu and his successors. Taken as a group, they provide one of the most important sources of Egyptian artistic and historical documents of the early Old Kingdom. This publication presents a fresh interpretation of the Giza stelae, with new colour photography, 'digital epigraphy' facsimile drawings, new translations, original discovery photographs and recent colour images taken at Giza. The book is published in full colour, with numerous charts and catalogues, gathering information on all Giza tombs with slab stelae emplacements, the history of their excavation, previous scholarly research, and comparative and interpretive chapters. Appendices include both colour and line drawing palaeographies of all hieroglyphs appearing on the stelae, and a collection of the enigmatic 'linen lists' that adorn the Giza stelae and many other Archaic and Old Kingdom monuments. Indexes complete the volume.

Peter Der Manuelian is Philip J. King Professor of Egyptology and Director of the Harvard Semitic Museum.
