This votive green faience plaque depicts the famous scene of the godess Hathorr in her animal form in a thicket of papyrus. This image originates in the Theban mountains, where the tombs are found. The Hathor carries a solar disk between horns which recalls her role as the mother of Re. At her neck shines a large collar with a pendant in the form of a lotus. A small hole at the left indicates that the object was meant to be suspended.

Heqanakht Letter

Heqanakht Letter I
Period:Middle KingdomDynasty:Dynasty 12Reign:reign of Senwosret IDate:ca. 1961–1917 B.C.Geography:From Egypt, Upper Egypt, Thebes, Deir el-Bahri, Tomb complex of Ipy (TT 315, MMA 516), Tomb of Meseh (MMA 516B), MMA excavations, 1921–22Medium:Papyrus, inkDimensions:H. 28.4 cm (11 3/16 in.), W. 27.1 cm (10 11/16 in.)Credit Line:Rogers Fund and Edward S. Harkness Gift, 1922Accession Number:22.3.516
Heqanakht was a native of Thebes (present day Luxor) during the early twelfth dynasty. As "ka-servant" of a high official he was responsible for the high official's statue cult and the administration of the land and income that had been endowed to maintain this cult. The letters and accounts written by Heqanakht and one or more scribes on sheets of papyrus were discovered by Museum excavator Herbert E. Winlock in the excavation season of 1921-1922 in the tomb of Meseh, who had a side passage and crypt in the tomb complex of the vizier Ipy, one of the rock cut tombs along the cliff overlooking the temples at Deir el-Bahri. The documents - some still folded, tied and sealed, when found - provide unique insights into the domestic and financial affairs of an average middle class family that lived almost four thousand years ago.
This is the front side (recto) of letter I, written, probably by Heqanakht himself, in columns from right to left on a pristine sheet of papyrus in hieratic script with black ink. It is addressed to Heqanakht's family, specifically to a man called Merisu, who was a kind of steward responsible for the functioning of the household and its production. In the letter Heqanakht gives instructions to send two individuals (Nakht, possibly Merisu's deputy, and Sinebniut, a subordinate) to rent land in a place named Perhaa. He makes comments on the rental fee of land previously leased and gives directions about the rations to be provided for the man Nakht on his mission to Perhaa.
