Celebrating the career of Shafik Allam, an Egyptologist known for his expertise in Ancient Egyptian legal theory and practice, this collection of articles offered by leading scholars explores such diverse subjects as a reading of the psychology of a sly stone carver in the deliberately clumsy work on an unfinished tomb in Saqqara; the echoes of ancient Egyptian beliefs and superstitions that are found today in certain folkloric practices and folktales; the owner of a newly-discovered decorated tomb in Saqqara is identified as an individual named Remni and placed in context as a close intimate of King Teti; an examination of the interior walls of Khufu's pyramid that through analysis of the camouflaging techniques used on them proposes a more complex architecture inside the great structure than has been previously understood; and other articles explore Coptic inscriptions on stelae from Middle Egypt, the Demotic inscriptions on the coffins of ibis, and two previously unpublished fourth century BCE papyri in Demotic from the sacred animal necropolis at Saqqara are interpreted, one discussing the plundering of a vineyard, and the other the repayment of a debt in silver.
