Illuminating Osiris contains twenty-seven articles by students, friends, and colleagues in honour of Mark Smith, Professor of Egyptology at the University of Oxford. Professor Smith is especially renowned as a Demoticist and specialist in Ancient Egyptian religion. His numerous Demotic text editions and translations of Egyptian funerary and religious compositions have been enormously influential in the field. The contributions in this volume naturally reflect his particular interests in the religion and literature of Graeco-Roman period Egypt, dealing with cult, rituals, astronomy, and divination, among other subjects. The book includes many editions or reeditions of texts written in Demotic, Hieratic, and Ptolemaic Hieroglyphs.



It is profusely illustrated in colour and b&w, and supplied with detailed indexes.
