Neue Fragmente der einleitenden Erzählung der Lehre des Chascheschonqi

Joachim Friedrich Quack

Pages 129 - 143

Two fragments which got misplaced in a frame of pBM EA 10520 actually belong to pBM EA 10508, the main manuscript of the Teaching of Khasheshonqi. They can be placed exactly in the top part of the first two columns and help with the decipherment and reconstruction of the beginning of the narrative introduction. A special discussion is devoted to the expression mṭ.t-rmč-nmḥ which, contrary to current translation, is more likely to mean a source of private income than a freedom from duty.
