Sanctioned killing in Ancient Egypt has been a much debated theme. So far, however, the perspective on this subject matter has been too broad, static, and limited in scope. Supported by a large body of inscriptional evidence dating to the Middle Kingdom, this paper argues that during this period the grounds for sanctioned killing and its practices were more wide-ranging than has often been supposed. Le thème de l'homicide sanctionné dans l'Égypte ancienne a fait l'objet de nombreux débats. Toutefois, jusqu'à présent l'approche a été trop générale, statique et limitée. Fondée sur l'étude de nombreuses inscriptions datant du Moyen Empire, cette contribution suggère que durant cette période les principes subordonnés aux pratiques de l'homicide sanctionné étaient plus variés qu'on ne l'avait cru auparavant.
