4.0 out of 5 stars Whats in a name?, 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great Name: Ancient Egyptian Royal Titulary: 33 (Society of Biblical Literature: Writings from the Ancient World) (Paperback)
This book updates, both the transliteration, and the word order within names, the information to be found in Wallis Budge's two volume work The Book of the kings of Egypt. The information is conveyed in a much clearer form, so that it is easier to understand the variations in each pharaoh's name, which are often specific to the temple which the Pharaoh is patronising. It was originally published by Brill, as hardback, and would in that form cost about 140, or thereabouts. This is therefore good value for money. Unlike Wallis-Budge Leprohon is unable to publish the original hieroglyphics, but that would be enormously expensive - and for me a non-hieroglyphic reader, an expensive extra. My only quibble is that it would have been nice to have had the great names of the post 25th dynasty Meroitic rulers, which Wallis-Budge did, and given recent advances in this field must be in need of updating.
