Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Ptolemaic fragment assemblages, a small group of 16 fragments from a scene dedicated to the goddess Mut and a series of attendant goddesses. The sixteen fragments join to form the better part of five blocks, each of which is 47.5cm in height and of varying width. The lower part of the king is preserved on the right, facing an enthroned figure of the goddess Mut and attendant goddesses behind her on the left. The far left side of the scene is not preserved. Beneath the offering scene is an area of vertical text columns, of which the beginnings of nine columns are preserved. The first two columns from the right, directly under the king, are oriented with him and face left; the other seven columns face right with the goddesses above, and form part of a hymn to Mut.
