Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the Mut's Contra-Temple at South Karnak. The Contra-Temple's inscriptions have a direct relationship to the crypt. The chapter illustrates a more accurate plan of the structure by the Brooklyn Museum Expedition's William H. Peck, made in connection with the expedition's work on the structure. The Brooklyn Museum Expedition was able to restore a block to the east wall of the door between Rooms Y and Z. The north face of the restored block is the more interesting side, as it contains part of a column of text in the same style as the other Mentuemhat inscriptions from the room and is in situ. The side walls of the Contra-Temple are partially built of reused decorated blocks that are Thut moside in date.

Keywords: Brooklyn Museum Expedition; Contra-Temple; Mentuemhat inscriptions; Mut temple; Ptolemy VI; South Karnak
