Abstract

From ancient Egyptian 'Appeals to the Living' among offering-chapel inscriptions, audience roles have been translated into the reifying categories of European orientalising fantasy as 'scribe' and 'priest'. Today this representation might seem comfortable at its point of departure in Eurocentric Egyptology - but has it lost contact with the ancient world we claim to study? An opportunity to reconnect may be provided by the earliest surviving literary manuscripts from Egypt, fragments from the town-site near al-Lahun.
