Subjects: Ancient Egypt, Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago

At the end of the 19th century, during the first year of his commission to copy inscriptions for the proposed German-Egyptian dictionary, Professor James Henry Breasted wrote, "I am now laying plans to copy not merely the historical, but all the inscriptions of Egypt and publish them." It was not until 1924 that he was able to put his plan into action. The present volume completes the documentation of the reliefs and inscriptions on the buildings at Medinet Habu constructed and decorated during the reign of Ramses III. Its Eastern High Gate is a structure unique among the extant ancient buildings of Egypt.
