Abstract :
A corpus of inscribed votive material discovered near the galena mines of Gebel el-Zeit has now been fully published by I. Régen and G. Soukiassian. Of particular weight and interest are the royal objects from the 12th–17th Dynasties. The material is fragmented, but further examination sheds new light on matters of content and reveals a series of overlooked joins, in part of great historical importance. Appended to this article are some notes on the nonroyal
material.
