This volume in honour of Mohamed el-Bialy offers 22 contributions by his friends and colleagues in appreciation for many years of true cooperation during his long career in Egyptian Archaeology. The articles deal with a wide range of topics and cover a time span from prehistory to the Byzantine Era. Unpublished objects and texts as well as results of most recent field research are presented by leading scholars in archaeology, Egyptology, architectural history and religious studies. The focus on the regions of Aswan and Ancient Thebes reflects the particular research interests of the honoree and his constant efforts to protect the archaeological heritage at these two centers of Ancient Egyptian civilization.
Alejandro Jiménez-Serrano, Ph.D. M.Phil., Universidad de Jaén, is lecturer of Ancient History and heads the archaeological excavations in the necropolis of Qubbet el-Hawa (Aswan, Egypt). His current research is focused on the provincial administration of Egypt during the Old and Middle Kingdoms.
Cornelius von Pilgrim, Dr. Phil., is director of the Swiss Institute for Architectural and Archaeological Research on Ancient Egypt in Cairo. He has published many contributions on Egyptian Archaeology, including a fundamental study on domestic architecture at Elephantine in the Second Millennium BC. He has been conducting excavations at Elephantine since 1986 and is director of the Joint Swiss-Egyptian Archaeological Mission at Syene.
