The 1st model of this e-book was once released in German in 1964, and the current English version embodies a few revisions, therefore superseding the sooner textual content. A free-standing column in a temple courtyard was-and is-the bearer of the inscription, and because this is often opposite to Hellenistic approach, the advice is made that 'an Egyptian-style perform' used to be undefined. it truly is rightly said that 'in Egypt the columns of many temples are coated with figurative money owed and hieroglyphs' (although the time period 'figurative bills' is not clear). the real parallel is that inscriptions are stumbled on on those temple columns; so are reliefs. Reference is then made to the djed-pillar, yet this isn't so proper. The djed-pillar is replete with symbols, however it isn't really inscribed; neither is this pillar often considered as 'a image of the victory received through Horus over Seth within the swimsuit heard through the tribunal of the gods'.

The first a part of the inscription includes the account through the priest, the second one Apollonius, of ways he outfitted the temple of Sarapis and received a lawsuit introduced opposed to him. within the moment half the hymn of Maiistas to Sarapis is given, and E. indicates how the god's function is a little bit reduced within the hymn compared with the account which precedes it, even if he follows Merkelbach in rationalising the divine nocturnal directions defined within the preliminary account. A priceless observation follows, and there's a really appropriate presentation of the issues when it comes to the law-suit, choice being given to the idea that non secular conservatism produced competition to a overseas cult.
