Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a set of frag mentary limestone reliefs from the site of Gebelein in Upper Egypt, belonging to a temple built during the reign of Nebhepetre Mentuhotep. On the left bank of the Nile, about 28 km south of Thebes, the vast desert plain uplifts to form two low hills. On the spurs of these eminences, whose slopes run parallel to the river, spreads the site of Gebelein. The three names Jnrty , J'rw , Pr-ḥwt-ḥr refer strictly to the locality of Gebelein. Jnrty may refer to the site’s geography, with its characteristic two hills. J'rw is the name of a funerary estate. Pr-&t;wt-&t;r , the house of Hathor, refers to the temple erected on the southern hill at Gebelein. Anubis, lord of Jnrty , Anubis, lord of Tᶟ-ḥḏ and ;Thoth are the deities closely linked with the Gebelein site from the earliest times.

Keywords: Anubis; Egypt; Gebelein; J'rw; Jnrty; Nebhepetre Mentuhotep; Pr-ḥwt-ḥr
