Sur ce point, voir Ecrire des phrases Sirat, J. Irigoin et E. Beyond the balance stands a female, holding the sceptre of Isis, who seems to be called. Rhea, the wife of the Sun. The upper part of each manuscript is occupied by a series of pictural tablets under them are vertical columns of distinct hieroglyphics, or, in the epistolographic manuscripts, pages of the. The beginning of the manuscripts is seldom entire,. In the sculptures, the figures are generally less numerous; the same deities are commonly represented as on the painted coffins, but without the repetition. This circumstance, at first sight,.
Of the triumphal monuments, the most magnificent are the obeliscs, which are reported by Pliny to have been dedicated. These symbols are generally followed by a number of pompous titles, not always very intimately connected with each other, and among them we often find that of Lord of the asp bearing diadems,' with some others, immediately preceding the name and parentage of the sovereign, who is the principal subject of the inscription.
It is true, that some parts of this interpretation are in great measure conjectural; but none of it is altogether arbitrary, or unsupported- by some probable analogy and the spirit and tenor of the inscription is probably unimpaired by the alterations, which this approximation to the sense may unavoidably have introduced. Of the obeliscs, still in existence, there are perhaps about thirty, larger and smaller, which may be considered as genuine. Several others are decidedly spurious, having been chiefly sculptured at Rome, in imitation of the Egyptian style, but so negligently and unskilfully, as to have exhibited a striking difference even in the character of the workmanship.
Such are thePamphilian, in explanation of which the laborious Kircher bas published a folio volume, and the Barberinian or Veranian in both of these the emblems are put together in a manner wholly arbitrary and when an attempt is made to imitate the appear-. We may hope, however, that in future these unprofitable discussions and disputes will become less and less frequent, and that our knowledge of the antiquities of Egypt will gain as much in the solidity and sufficiency of its evidence, as it may probably lose in its hyothetical symmetry and its imaginary extent and while.
Salt to Mr. William Hamilton, of which 1 shall here insert an extract. Now it struck me on the spot, that these, being nearly of the same length as the Greek tablet, might possibly contain a translation. Bankes's possession, containing some fifty explanations of hieroglyphics from Dr. In following up this idea, 1 found, in other parts of the temple, the name of "Ptolemy" without the immortal," over offering figures and also those hieroglyphics which Dr.
Young supposes to represent the names of Osiris, Isis, and Horus, as well as Hermes, over their respective figures, invariably, 1 may say, throughout the numerous representations on the walls. Upon Mr. Bankes's return to England, he had the kindness and liberality to allow me free access to the unequalled treasures of drawings and inscriptions, that he had accumulated and brought home; and 1 soon obtained a knowledge of several additional characters from the comparison of these valuable documents. The most useful of these was. It happened, however, by mere accident, that the advantage which 1 derived from'this source was much less considerable than might have been expected, both from its abundance and from its uncontaminated purity; but 1 had been rather disposed to defer the ultimate study of Mr.
Bankes's collections, till their publication should give me a free right to employ them in any manner that 1 might think proper. Some remarks, however, that occurred to me in consequence of looking them over, 1 incorporated in a little essay which 1 gave to Mr. Belzoni, and which makes the appendix to the second edition of his travels. Bankes, at Abydos.
In this there are only two kings intervening between this Psammis and the Memnon of the ancients so that, if Pliny is right in his account of this obelisc, the popular tradition respecting the colossus, supposed to represent Memnon, must be erroneous. This, indeed, it would not be dimcult to admit, as very likely to have happened in the case of any popular tradition but there is a still greater difficulty in the inscription found by Mr. It has also been observed by an accomplished scholar, who is much attaehed to tb.
Evolution of the ampersand
We may, however, hope, that future researches will furnish us with materials, that may enable us to remove this and many other difficulties, which at present envelope the chronology of the kings of Egypt. ALTHOUGH the discovery of the general import of the hieroglyphics has by no means excited any great sensation in this country, yet the activity of the various collectors resident in Egypt seems to have been in some measure stimulated by it. Important additions have been made, or are about to be made, to the Egyptian department of the British Museum and in France, the magnificent liberality of the Government, together with the insatiable curiosity of some affluent individuals, has held out ample encouragement to the commercial antiquarian.
Drovetti, the French consul at Alexandria, which had. Drovetti himself; for 1 ani informed that it is not mentioned in the catalogue of his Museum, which has been sent to Paris and elsewhere. Although both the inscriptions appeared to be almost illegible, yet 1 did not despair ofbeingable, in a proper light, and with sunicient patience, to decipher the greater part; and 1 should have been tempted to remain a few days at Leghorn,.
The more, however, that 1 considered the importance of the only supplement to the pillar of Rosetta, that then appeared to be in existence, the more anxiety 1 felt to make some effort, to secure it from oblivion or destruction and with more simplicity, perhaps, than good policy, when 1 returned to Pisa in the evening, 1 wrote a letter to MM.
Mompurgo, of which 1 shall here insert a transr lation. Drovetti, and remain in your possession, until you have received his answer to the inquiry, whether he will permit them to be sent to London, either for myself or for the British Museum, and what price he would expect to receive for them. Mompurgo readily agreed to my proposai, and 1 engaged a distinguished artist of Florence to undertake the performance of my plan but 1 believe he was accidentally prevented from fulfilling his engagement. It appears, however, that his labour, as far as 1 was concerned, would have been wholly lost for Mr.
Drovetti's cupidity seems to have been roused by the discovery of an unknown treasure, and he has given me to understand, that nothing should induce him to separate it from the remainder of his extensive and truly valuable collection, of which he thinks it so well calculated to enhance the price and he refuses to allow any kind of copy of it to be taken.
But, as it often happens to those who are too eager to monopolize, he has now outstood his market, and the pearl of great price, which six months ago 1 would have purchased for much more than its value, is now become scarcely worth my acceptance. The first circumstance, that repressed my eagerness to obtain a copy of Drovetti's inscriptions, was the arrivai of Mr. Casati at Paris, with a parcel of manuscripts, among which Mr. Champollion discovered one that considerably resembled, in its preamble,.

Fresnel is the friend of Arago, and nothing more requires to be said of his character and sentiments. At the beginning of my Egyptian researches, 1 had accidentallyreceived a letterfromMr.
Champollion, which accompanied a copy of his work on the state of Egypt under the Pharaohs, sent as a present to the Royal Society and as he requested some particular information respecting several parts of the enchorial inscription of Rosetta, which were imperfectly represented in the engraved copies, 1 readily answered his inquiries from a reference to the original monument in the British Museum and a short time afterwards 1 sent him a copy of my conjectural translation of the inscriptions, as it was inserted in the Archaeplogia.
Of Mr. The inhabitants of this country," says Diodorus, Book I. Therefbre, they are not very curious in the building of their houses but in beautifying their sepulchres they leave nothing undone that [the excess of magnificence can suggest]. What the Egyptians performed, after the deaths of every one of their kings, clearly evidences the great love they bore to them.
For honour done to him that cannot possibly know it, in a grateful return of a former benefit, carries along with it a testimony of sincerity, without the least colour of dissimulation. The whole ofEgypt being divided into a number of parts, called Nomes by the Greeks, each of these is governed by a N omarcha, to whom the care of all its public concerns is entrusted. The whole of the families of the priests are exempt from taxes, and they corne immediately after the king in rank and authority.

The same advantages are possessed by the shepherds, who receive the charge of the flocks from their forefathers as by inheritance, and pass their whole- lives in the care of their cattle and having derived much information from. Such then were the institutions of the ancient Egyptians with regard to their public and private occupations.

They feed their children very lightly, and at an incredibly small expense giving them a little meal of the coarsest and cheapest kind, the pith of the papyrus, baked under the ashes, with the roots and stalks of some marsh weeds, either raw, or boiled, or roasted and since most ofthem are brought up, on account of the mildness of the climate, without shoes, and indeed without any other clothing the whole of the expense, incurred by the parents, till they corne to years of maturity, does not exceedabout 20 drachmas, or 13 shillings, each.
This frugality is the true reason of the great populousness of Egypt, and of the magnificence of the public works, with which the country is adorned. The children.

It is said also that the Chaldaeans in Babylon are derived from an Egyptian colony, and have acquired their reputation for astrology by means of the information obtained from the. This superstitious regard to the sacred animais is so thoroughly rooted in their minds, and every one of them has his passions so strongly bent upon their honour, that at the time when Ptolemy had not yet been called a king by the Romans, and the people were using every possible effort'to flatter the Italians, who were visiting the country as strangers, and studious to avoid every thing that could excite disputes, or lead to war, on account of their dread of the consequences a Roman having killed a cat, and a crowd being collected about his residence, neither the magistrates, who were sent by the king to appease their rage, nor the general terror of the Roman name, were able to save the offender from vengeance, although he had done it unintentionally: and this we relate, not from the testimony of others, but from what we ourselves had an opportunity of seeing, upon our journey to Egypt.
If these things appear to many ineredible and almost fabulous, what remains to be told will be thought still more extraordinary. In the time of a great famine in Egypt, it is related that many of the inhabitants were compelled by. Indeed whenever a dog bas died in a house, the whole of the persons, residing in it, shave their whole bodies, and go into mourning and what is still more remarkable, if there was either wine or corn, or any other provisions, in the house, in which the animal died, they would not dare to make any use of it whatever and if they lose these animais, while they are absent upon any military expedition, they carry back their cats and their hawks in.
Besides these ceremonies, there are many other customs at the death of the sacred bull named Apis; for after he has been splendidly interred, the priests seek for a calfwho is marked as nearly as possible in the same manner and having found him, they release the publie from their mourning, and the appointed persons carry the calf first to Nilopolis, where they feed. In these forty days only, he is allowed to be seen by women, who perform certain evolutions before him, which are probably more amusing to his attendants than to himself and at no other time are women allowed to see him.
The reason of the honours paid to him is said to be, that. The customs of the Egyptians, with regard to their funerals, are not the least wonderful of their peculiar institutions. Now the persons, that undertake this office, are artists, who exercise the profession from generation to generation: and they bring to the friends of the deceased an estimate of the expenses of the funeral, and ask them in what manner they wish that it should be performed. When the agreement is made, the operations are commenced by the proper persons and first the scribe marks out how the dissection is to be perfbrmed, upon the left side of the body the dissector then cuts it.
It is not however probable that such a practice should have been continued in the times of the Ptolemies although Lucian, who had an appointment in Egypt under Marcus Aurelius, may be considered as pretty good authority, when he speaks seriously. The body is then placed, by those who have family catacombs already prepared, in the compartment allotted to it those who are not possessed of catacombs construct a new apartment for the purpose, in their own houses, and set the coffin upright against the firmest of the walls.

It is most solemnly established in Egypt, to pay a more marked respect to their parents and their ancestors, when they are removed to their everlasting habitations.
We must now enumerate such of the Greeks as have visited Egypt in ancient times, for the acquirement of knowledge and wisdom. The priests of the Egyptians relate, from the records preserved in their sacred volumes, that they were visited by Orpheus and Musaeus, and Melampus and Daedalus; by Homer, the poet, and Lycurgus, the Spartan: by Solon, the Athenian, and Plato, the philosopher and that Pythagoras, of Samos, also came there, and the mathematician Eudoxus and Democritus of Abdera, and Oenopides of Chius.
