By Carl Richard Lepsius, William Bell

Carl Richard Lepsius (1810-1884) was once a pioneering Prussian Egyptologist one of the founders of contemporary Egyptology. He used to be commissioned to guide an archaeological excursion to Egypt by way of the Prussian King Frederick Wilhelm IV in 1842. This 1858 English translation offers an 1856 book that contained one of many first targeted discussions of the vague twenty second Dynasty of old Egyptian kings. The twenty second Dynasty have been descendants of Libyan settlers who governed among c.943 and 716 BCE within the 3rd Intermediate interval of Egyptian historical past, a interval characterized via episodes of political instability. Lepsius discusses the chronology of succession within the twenty second Dynasty on the subject of texts exposed through himself and the French archaeologist Auguste Mariette. even if a few of Lepsius' assertions concerning the starting place of the twenty second Dynasty at the moment are recognized to be fallacious, his booklet continues to be a invaluable account of the early historiography of the twenty second Dynasty.
