Two Treasurers of the Late Middle Kingdom

Wolfram Grajetzki


The Middle Kingdom (c. 2000 – 1500 BC) is in many respects the classical period of ancient Egyptian history and culture. During the two main periods of this era there were profound changes in administration and material culture. The office of the treasurer was established in the Early Middle Kingdom as one of the highest offices at the royal palace. As a result of recent finds of stelae and other material, this volume presents an in-depth study of two important treasurers, as well as many of the minor officials in their administrations.
