Our first lecture for the 2016-17 season
A Wall for All Seasons: The Funerary Chapel of Pahery at El Kab
Prof Ronald J. Leprohon, Professor of Egyptology, University of Toronto
Date: Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.
The Eighteenth Dynasty tomb chapel of Pahery, the Mayor of El Kab in southern Upper Egypt, contains scenes of the work done during all three seasons of the Egyptian calendar. A description of these and the symbolic direction in which they were meant to be viewed will be followed by an examination of the hieroglyphic captions accompanying the scenes and how these offered a different message to a literate audience.
