Summary:
In an attempt to initiate a demotic "Sammelbuch", the author collects over 230 demotic texts from a wide variety of mostly votive objects: coins, cups and bowls, bronze tables, censers, statuettes, statues, non-funerary stelas, and offering tables. All texts are presented in facsimile drawings together with transliterations and translations, and the Greek versions of bilingual texts are also provided. Photographs are appended for 16 never-before published objects, as well as for some 20 more never-before published with photographs. For each item, a succinct bibliography points out the relevant text editions, highlighting published plates, dates and provenances. Brief notes discuss the various readings that have been proposed, and the possible readings that the author has been able to establish. Full indexes complete the volume.
