Title: Les Patèques inscrits du Louvre
Author(s): KOENIG, Yvan

This article is devoted to the study of the inscriptions on the Louvre 'Patèques'. These inscriptions refer mainly to the different aspects of the sun god, and only secondarily to the god Ptah. The exegesis used in the interpretation of the inscriptions may be compared to other methods attested during the same period in the Middle East in relation to the use of the Akkadian language and script. Both methods of hermeneutics whether in Egypt or in the Middle East are forerunners of the method used in rabbinical Judaism called notarikon.
