This is the first volume of the new Studia Aegyptiaca series, published in cooperation with the Department of Egyptology, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. The series aims to publish the results of the activities of the Hungarian Archaeological Mission in the Thebes necropolis.
The research and fieldwork in and around the monument of Djehutymes, the Theban tomb of a high-ranking official during Ramesses II’s reign, started under the leadership of Prof. László Kákosy in 1983. Since then, a number of Hungarian egyptologists and other specialists joined the research of Djehutymes’s monument, and the excavation revealed not only the rock-cut halls, chambers and passages, but the open forecourts, pylons and even the remains of the pyramid-like mud superstructure with those of a decorated shrine. The present volume gives the detailed account of this more than two-decade-long extraordinary excavation work, from epigraphic, architectural and archaeological perspectives.
