The Demotic and Hieratic Papyri in the Suzuki Collection of Tokai University, Japan
By Richard Jasnow, Joseph Manning and Kyoko Yamahana Edited by Myriam Krutzsch
This book contains approximately fifty late Egyptian texts, published for the first time.
The texts represent an interesting range of document types, a range of demotic handwriting, and include a rare word list and a new mythological narrative. There is also one late hieratic text concerned with temple land, and some Greek fragments from the Byzantine period.
The texts were purchased by Professor Suzuki in the early 1960s from various dealers in Cairo. The bulk of the collection, now housed in the Department of Asian Civilization, School of Letters at Tokai University as part of the Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern Collection (AENET), consists of early demotic texts.
This book is a result of a five-year collaboration between Tokai University, Yale University, Johns Hopkins University, The University of Michigan, and the Staatliche Museum, Berlin.
