Title: Nineteenth Dynasty Stelae and the Merits of Hieroglyphic Palaeography
Author(s): HARING, Ben
Journal: Bibliotheca Orientalis
Volume: 67 Issue: 1-2 Date: 2010
This review article discusses the present state, potential, and aims of hieroglyphic palaeography, mainly on the basis of an evaluation of Jan Moje’s analysis of Nineteenth Dynasty private stelae. Rather than being a mere auxiliary instrument that helps to establish the date and provenance of inscribed monuments and objects, meticulous palaeographic analysis offers insights into the organisation and methods of the makers of hieroglyphic texts.
