This work is a KWIC (key-word-in-context) concordance and prosopography of the Aramaic documents from ancient Egypt as published in the four-volume edition edited by B. Porten and A. Yardeni: Textbook of Aramaic Documents from Ancient Egypt (published in Jerusalem, 1986-99, and distributed by Eisenbrauns). Most of the documents published, and indexed here, are from the Persian period, with a few earlier and several later texts; they are legal, epistolary, and administrative (many of the latter consisting largely of personal names). This comprehensive concordance will prove very useful to students of Aramaic who wish to have access to the collocations presented, students of the society and history of Persian-era Egypt, as well as those interested in personal names and their contribution to our understanding of both history and language. Published by Eisenbrauns for the Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon project.
