Medinet Habu. Volume VII : The Temple Proper, Part III: The Third Hypostyle Hall and All Rooms Accessible from It with Friezes of Scenes from the Roof Terraces and Exterior Walls of the Temple
Volume VII in the epigraphic series recording the Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III covers the scanty remains of the westernmost part of the Temple with the "Holy of Holies" and its surrounding rooms. In addition, it also contains drawings of two series of scenes depicting various deities of Egypt in a kind of "pantheon." The one is on the inner faces of the outer walls of the Temple Proper, the other on the exterior of the outer walls. The editors used this volume to include key-plans for the recording of the Temple in the seven volumes, which should prove most useful. Equally welcome is a concordance of the "Belegstellen" to the Erman-Grapow, Worterbuch der agyptischen Sprache with the publication of Medinet Habu. [From a review by Hans Goedicke in the American Journal of Archaeology 69 (1965) 271-72].
