Edfu under the Twelfth to Seventeenth Dynasties: The monuments in the National Museum of Warsaw

Marcel Marée

The National Museum of Warsaw is home to an important collection of epigraphic material from Edfu, excavated and purchased by French and Franco-Polish expeditions in the course of the 1930s. The finds are of considerable interest but remain comparatively unknown, as publications have been few and on the whole quite inaccessible. The fourteen stelae and offering tables presented are from the Twelfth to Seventeenth Dynasties, and all have been newly photographed. Their re-examination throws fresh light on many aspects of social history as well as artistic production. The objects are discussed in chronological order, in context with associated monuments.
