The Memphite Sacerdotal Decree of 161 BCE

Journal of Egyptian History. 2023. Vol. 16. P 30-82.

The present article deals with a little-known sacerdotal decree composed under Ptolemy VI Philometor in 161 BCE and includes a new hieroglyphic copy, a translation, and a commentary. The document is the most recent of the preserved Ptolemaic priestly decrees. It is of particular historical interest because it provides information on coronation ceremonies for Ptolemy VI in Memphis, an event not mentioned in other sources. Other notable elements are the reference to a revolt or unrest and the fact that the royal cartouches are consistently erased. Although the text has the usual structure of the other synodal decrees and shows, in particular, several parallels with the decrees of 196 and 185 BCE, it contains significant deviations from these texts and cannot be considered a copy or simple update of these earlier texts.

The Earliest Copy of the Philensis Decrees

Égypte nilotique et méditerranéenne. 2023. T. 16. P. 61–68.

The article is devoted to the document with the copies of two synodal decrees of 186 and 185 BC from Philae discovered by the author in J.G. Wilkinson’s archive kept in the Bodleian libraries. The sheet containing only the hieroglyphic version is dated to 1820–30s, and helps to make a number of restorations in both inscriptions.

Миф о «принятии облика сокола» (CT 148) / Myth of ‘taking shape of a falcon’ (Ct 148)]

Сходознавство. 2020. Вып. 85. С. 105–119.

The myth touches on the birth of Horus by the goddess Isis. It has been preserved on five coffins dated to the 11th – 12th Dynasties, mainly come from Asyut (Upper Egypt). Being different versions of the same spell, these records allow to recreate a relatively complete exposition of the birth of the lord of gods and a future ruler, expressing the Egyptians beliefs common during the First Intermediate period.
