Overview

Egyptologists have often neglected important sites in the Delta, and in the case of the tomb of Hsw (located at the ancient site of Naukratis), the neglect is particularly glaring since the tomb was first recorded by Egyptologists in 1910 but never studied or analyzed. This is the largest and most significant of the monuments of the Pharaonic Period at Naukratis, and its study yields important critical material on the First Intermediate Period and the Middle Kingdom. A careful analysis of the tomb provides local variations of Coffin Texts, formulaic inscriptions, and iconographic details.
