(Englisches Abstract des Vortragenden:) 

After a survey of new textual discoveries at Hatnub since our work there began in 2012, this presentation will give a preliminary account of a newly-discovered text from Hatnub quarry P, from which comes the large majority of long-known Hatnub texts. The ‘new’ text, provisionally designated CS 6 (cirque sud 6), is an addition to the ‘nomarchal’ corpus of Hatnub texts, commemorating the families of Hare nome nomarchs Ahanakht I and Neheri I. Executed, like them, in red pigment on the inner rock wall of the quarry, CS 6 comprises a standing figure surrounded on all sides by traces of approximately 40 columns of (now very poorly preserved) hieratic text. CS 6 commemorates a nomarch, either a [Djehuti]nakht or [Aha]nakht, and the so-far legible sections contain a long series of biographical moral claims.

Dr. Roland Enmarch graduated from Oxford with a BA in Oriental Studies (Ancient Egyptian with Akkadian), and a DPhil specialising in Middle Egyptian pessimistic poetry. As well as continuing to work on literary laments, he also studies quarrying and expeditionary inscriptions, particularly those from the alabaster quarries at Hatnub. Since 2004, he works at the University of Liverpool, currently as Senior Lecturer in Egyptology at the Department of Archaeology, Classics, and Egyptology.
