Abstract

The aim of the present study is to assess the possibility of the existence of “co-regencies” in the local court of Elephantine during the twelfth dynasty. This idea was first suggested in the 1990s following the publication of two seal-impressions found in Elephantine that mention the name of two consecutive governors of the late twelfth dynasty; Ameny-Seneb and Khakaure-Seneb. Further evidence of possible “co-regencies” has been found in the cases of Ankhu and his father Sarenput II, and Heqaib I and his father Sarenput I. All these instances are discussed in order to argue for the existence of this mechanism of succession and the institution known to the ancient Egyptians as the “staff of old age”. When appropriately interpreted, it becomes clear that the material evidence indicates the existence of “co-regencies” of governors in Elephantine. The most notable evidence appears in monumental inscriptions and on seal-impressions.

In: Middle Kingdom Palace Culture and Its Echoes in the Provinces
Middle Kingdom Palace Culture and Its Echoes in the Provinces addresses the significant gaps that remain in scholarly understanding about the origins and development of Egypt’s “Classical Age”. The essays in this volume are the end result of a conference held at the University of Jaén in Spain to study the history, archaeology, art, and language of the Middle Kingdom. Special attention is paid to provincial culture, perspectives, and historical realities. The distinguished group of Egyptologists from around the world gathered to consider the degree of influence that provincial developments played in reshaping the Egyptian state and its culture during the period. This volume aims to take a step towards a better understanding of the cultural renaissance, including the ideological transformations and social reorganization, that produced the Middle Kingdom.
