    El prestigioso egiptólogo Zahi Hawass ha afirmado rotundamente durante una conferencia en la universidad de Palermo que sabe “dónde está la tumba perdida de Cleopatra”. Si definitivamente sale a la luz la tumba de la última reina de Egipto, una de las mujeres más famosas de la historia, podría ser el descubrimiento del siglo, un hallazgo “más importante aún que la tumba de Tutankamón”, en palabras de Hawass.
    .
    El egiptólogo, que lleva años dedicado a buscar la tumba de Cleopatra, asegura que todos los indicios le conducen a un ambiente subterráneo situado a varios metros de profundidad, excavado en el terreno a la sombra de las imponentes ruinas del templo Taposiris Magna, un lugar funerario a casi 30 kilómetros de Alejandría. Asimismo, cree que la zona estaría inundada por culpa del lago que hay en las cercanías del derruido templo.
    .
    Obviamente, el egiptólogo no ha revelado las coordenadas precisas de la tumba, aunque tiene claro que está a un paso de sacarla a la luz: “Estoy muy próximo. Creo haberla encontrado. Estoy en el buen camino. Tengo grandes esperanzas de dar con ella pronto”.

  • This is what Abu Simbel might have looked like prior to it’s construction, which is an artist representation. The following image displays a before and after and the last image, the current appearance of the temple as we see it today.

    Abu Simbel runs downriver to Philae (near Aswan). The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside in the 13th century BC, during the 19th dynasty reign of the Pharaoh Ramesses II (𓇳𓏤𓄟𓋴𓇓)

  • Egyptians 𓆎𓅓𓏏𓀂𓀭𓏪 “kmt” attached great religious and spiritual significance to the honey bee. Bees were associated with royalty in Egypt 𓆎𓅓𓏏𓊖 “kmt”; for as early as 3500 BC, the bee was the symbol of the King of Lower Egypt 𓆤 (The symbol of the King of Upper Egypt was a reed 𓇓). There are many examples of bee hieroglyphs to be found in the records, as well as hieroglyphs for honey and beekeeper 𓆤𓏏𓀜𓏭 “bity”.𓋹

    Beekeeping has been practiced at least 4,500 years in Egypt, the Egyptians have been making hives in the same way, out of pipes of clay or Nile 𓈗 mud, often stacked one on top of another. These hives were moved up and down the Nile depending on the time of year 𓆴, allowing the bees to pollinate any and all flowers which were in season. Special rafts were built for moving these hives, which were stacked in pyramids. At each new location, the hives were carried to the nearby flowers and released. When the flowers died, the bees were taken a few miles further down the Nile and released again. Thus the bees traveled the whole length of Egypt. This tradition continues into the present day.

    Honey 𓆤𓏊𓏦 “bity” was used by all classes in Ancient Egypt, indicating that it must have been produced on a large scale. It was used for everything from sweetening food, to preventing infection by being placed on wounds, to paying taxes. One marriage contract has been found which states, "I take thee to wife... and promise to deliver to thee yearly twelve jars of honey." Honey was exacted as tribute from conquered countries; for instance, many jars of honey were paid each year by the Retenu tribe of Syria to their Egyptian conqueror, Thothmes II (𓅝𓄟𓊃𓄤𓈍𓏫) “djhwty-ms-hA-mi-re”.𓋹

    It was written in a ritual, contained in the "Salt Magical Papyrus", that bees were created from the tears of the sun-god Ra 𓇳 himself. "When Ra weeps again the water which flows from his eyes upon the ground turns into working bees. They work in flowers and trees of every kind and wax and honey come into being."𓋹

  • The Graffito of Esmet-Akhom (or Philae 436) is the last known inscription written in Egyptian 𓆎𓅓𓏏𓀂𓀭𓏪 “kmt” hieroglyphs 𓌃𓂧𓅱𓀁𓊹 “mdw-ntr” (divine writing), dated to 394 CE.

    It is inscribed in the temple Isis 𓊨𓁐 at Philae in southern Egypt. The inscription accompanies and refers to an image of the Nubian 𓉺𓌔𓏏𓀐 “iwnti” god 𓊹 Mandulis, often depicted wearing an elaborate headdress of ram's horns, cobras and plumes 𓋚 surmounted by sun discs 𓇳. He was sometimes shown in the form of a hawk 𓅃, but wearing a human head 𓅽. (Picture 5 - temple of Kalabsha - Nubia).𓋹

    In addition to the hieroglyphic text there is also a demotic inscription. The demotic one is dated to "the day of the Birth of Osiris 𓁹𓊩𓀭 ‘wsir’, his dedication-festival, year 110 [Diocletian epoch]", corresponding to 24 August 394. At the time, Roman Egypt 𓆎𓅓𓏏𓊖 “kmt” had been largely Christianised, and Egypt was a separate diocese within the Praetorian prefecture of the East.

    TEXTS:

    The hieroglyphic inscription reads: "Before Mandulis 𓂸𓄱𓃬𓏲𓂋𓏤 son of Horus, by the hand of Nesmeterakhem, son of Nesmeter, the Second Priest of Isis, for all time and eternity. Words spoken by Mandulis 𓈘𓃭𓏲𓂋𓏤𓅱, Lord of the Abaton, great god."𓋹

    The demotic inscription reads: "I, Nesmeterakhem, the Scribe of the House of Writings (?) of Isis, son of Nesmeterpanakhet the Second Priest of Isis, and his mother Eseweret, I performed work on this figure of Mandulis for all time, because he is fair of face towards me. Today, the Birthday of Osiris, his dedication feast, year 110 [of the reign of Diocletian].𓋹

    La découverte du tombeau

    Après 3 jours de fouilles non loin de la tombe de Ramsès VI dans la Vallée des Rois égyptienne, un porteur d'eau découvre une marche. La première marche d'un escalier qui s'enfonce dans le sol. Un escalier qui mène à une chambre funéraire. Une chambre funéraire qui avait été oubliée pendant plus de 3000 ans. Toutankhamon renaît.

    2 siècles après la mort de Toutankhamon, son règne est oublié, sa sépulture est perdue. Des ouvriers creusent la tombe de Ramsès VI tout à côté de celle de Toutankhamon sans même le savoir. Arrive alors Carter, qui découvre en 1922 les cabanes de ces ouvriers...

    La découverte du tombeau

    En 1922, après plusieurs années de fouilles infructueuses à la recherche du tombeau de Toutankhamon, Howard Carter explore une zone située près de l'entrée de la tombe de Ramsès VI. Bloquer l'accès à cette grande attraction touristique est un pari osé mais l'égyptologue, plus décidé que jamais, joue le tout pour le tout. Cette campagne d'un an est sa dernière tentative. Les fouilles commencent le 1er novembre.

  • A faience udjat-eye, one of the most recognizable hieroglyphs from ancient Egypt (@metmuseum 10.130.1900, ca. 664-332 BCE). The udjat (wDA.t) is a human eye with stylized markings of a falcon's eye, creating a hybrid of the ocular organ that corresponds to similar composite images like the ubiquitous animal-headed forms of Egyptian deities. The eye in question is the solar and lunar eye of the cosmic deity (the left eye being the moon, the right eye being the sun), the whole or healthy eye - udjat, as opposed to the injured or incomplete eye. The udjat-eye, as the eye of cosmic Horus, features in religious narratives in which Seth damages the eye, which must then be restored by Thoth. This restoration relates to the lunar cycle, the waning and waxing of the disk being its cyclical injury and restoration, and Thoth as lunar deity is the master of this cycle (and its corollary, time keeping). The verb wDA means "to be well, healthy, whole," and as such is among the most popular amuletic forms for both the living and the dead; on mummies, the udjat-eye amulet can cover the incision through which the organs were removed. The human eye (the biliteral "ir") is also normally depicted as the eye wearing makeup, which both has a medical value in protecting the conjunctiva from infection and serves as a hieroglyphic indication of the health of the eye. And if one ujdat-eye is good--four is even better! Swipe for British Museum EA 7391. Four is a cosmic number, corresponding to the cardinal directions (more on the four-faced Hathor later!), and this amulet is a beautiful hieroglyphic evocation of cosmic health.

  • To express joy during this holiday season, the two hieroglyphs that indeed write "joy," as preserved on another item of jewelry from the tomb of Sathathoriunet (metmuseum). The lower sign should look familiar: the ib-heart, and indeed here the sign is used ideographically for "heart." The upper sign is the vertebral column (with exaggeration of the spinous processes) with TWO depending spinal cords; this is a biliteral sign writing aleph - w, Aw. I emphasize the "two," because on a Middle Kingdom coffin text we saw the same sign with one depending element write imAx (there meaning "honored one"). The root Aw most commonly means "long, extended," so to be Aw ib "extended of heart" is to be joyous! .
    Another use of the word Aw is following the preposition r (written just with the mouth sign): r Aw, with a suffix pronoun following the Aw. This phrase, meaning literally "to its extent," is a way of saying "entire." A more common variant is r-Dr, which appears frequently in the phrase tA r-Dr=f "the entire land," literally "the land to its limit." So Aw ib.w=Tn r Aw=sn "May your hearts be entirely joyous!"

  • Took the boys to see King Tut, and both fell in love a different statue. Fredde found one in the very first room and kept wanting to circle back to it. Kiel, just sat and stared at the larger-than-life statue of the boy king in the very last room. He kept telling me about it (his arm is gone. He has a mouth. He has two eyes. And on and on...) I just adore watching these two discover new cultures, learn new things, and expand their minds!
