Ein „nouveau Möller“? Grenzen und Möglichkeiten. Ein working paper zum gleichnamigen Vortrag

Svenja A. Gülden

Though more than 100 years old Möller’s Hieratische Paläographie still is the standard reference work for palaeographic questions. Parts of this palaeography could be complemented and replaced by studies concentrating on specific times spans or sources, but a systematic study of the hieratic script covering all time spans of Egyptian history is– for many reasons – still missing. ‚Ein „nouveau Möller“? Grenzen und Möglichkeiten’ was the title of a paper given at the conference „Ägyptologische ,Binsen‘-Weisheiten“ I, at Mainz in 2011 – this working paper sums up the different aspects discussed in that paper.

Hieratische Aktenvermerke

Johannes Jüngling

Although a significant number of the hieratic archival documents bear additional auxiliary signs or sign groups, a systematical study of these hieratic check marks is still missing. The present paper aims to close this gap by providing an overview of the already known hieratic check marks, covering the period between the 5th and 25th dynasties. Those marks are examined with respect to their graphic, phonological, morphological, and semantic features, including a short excursus on hieratic inscriptions on the Amarna tablets. At the end, a table with facsimile samples of the check marks is given.
