Castration Story from the Tebtunis Temple Library (Hardcover) (Rana Su00e9rida)
About this item
This volume by Rana Sérida presents the first complete edition of a hitherto unattested narrative from the Tebtunis temple library in Egypt (1st–2nd century AD). The story seems to have formed part of the so-called Inaros Cycle, a sequence of stories that arose from the struggle of prince Inaros I against the Assyrians. A Castration Story from the Tebtunis Temple Library is set in the reign of king Necho I (672–664 BC), who is also known for his rebellion against the Assyrians, and it also mentions general Anosis. The text makes repeated mention of the castration of a man who is thus made into a eunuch. This unique publication will be of great value to Egyptologists and students of ancient literature.
