The second volume of the Epigraphic Survey's series on Luxor Temple is devoted to the in situ reliefs and inscriptions of Tutankhamun's Colonnade Hall that were not documented in the first of the series, The Festival Procession of Opet in the Colonnade Hall (OIP 112). Included in this volume are reconstructions of the Eighteenth Dynasty facade of the hall, the northern and southern doorjamb reliefs, the upper register scenes, the decoration of the columns and their architraves, the dedicatory bandeau texts of the New Kingdom, graffiti from the later periods, and the three colossal statues that still stand in the northern end of the hall. The plates are accompanied by a booklet of translations and commentary on the iconographic and textual additions and revisions that were made by a long succession of Egyptian rulers and reflect the complex history of the monument.
