Une stèle de Mefkat (Montgeron 2007.4)

Abstract : This paper deals with an unpublished stela, belonging to the rare funerary objects recorded from the necropolis of Pharaonic Mefkat, in the Western Delta. The document can be dated to the XXVth dynasty, it shows features of archaism in the text that are typical of that time, as well as stylistic elements that are found on the documents of the beginning of the XXVIth dynasty. The three divine figures represented on the top, arranged as a family triad of osirian type, are the three main deities of the city of Mefkat, appearing together for the first time. The inscriptions concern Ankhhor son of Padiaset and Naisaaroudj, whose family held priesthoods related to the observation of stars and the calculation of hours for the worship of the local goddess Hathor.
