TWO IMAGES OF DEIFIED PTOLEMIES IN THE
TEMPLE PRECINCT OF THE GODDESS MUT AT
SOUTH KARNAK

Richard A. Fazzini

It is a privilege to be represented in this volume of studies in honor of a fine scholar. It is also a pleasure because the honoree is a friend whose willingness to permit others to use Beit Canada, the expedition house of the Akhenaten Temple Project, which he has so long directed, has helped make possible the writer's archaeological fieldwork at Thebes.1 Under the circumstances, it seemed appropriate to contribute an article on some results of that work to this volume. As the editors of this Festschrift have requested essays on subjects related to the honoree's interest in Egyptian history and the interconnections between Egypt and the ancient Mediterranean world, the writer has chosen to use this opportunity to publish two monuments related to the cults of the Ptolemies in Egypt and previously the subject of brief, un-illustrated notices in print.
