Reviews - What do customers think about A Ptolemaic Lexikon: A Lexicographical Study of the Ptolemaic Texts in the Temple of Edfu (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta)?

Monumental  Mar 21, 2002
Scholars will revel in this truly exhaustive lexikon of Ptolemaic language drawn (mostly) from the expansive walls of the Temple of Horus at Edfu in Upper Egypt. Though there are a few mistakes which are inevitable in a work of such complexity and magnitude, Wilson's work is unquestionably a life's achievement, and her research(as well as her attention to detail) is beyond compare. The intricacies of Ptolemaic Egyptian language can be brain-addling and convoluted, but Wilson does a careful job cross-referencing in a way that will facilitate use of this book by any number of serious scholars. Priceless...and best of all it really can serve as a fine doorstop when your nose isn't buried in its pages. Bravo, Penelope.
