The complete gods and godesses of ancient Egypt.Richard.H.Wilkinson


I can vouch for these four as worth getting. The Concise Dictionary takes a bit of getting used to, since it's a handwritten monograph, but at least Faulkner had a clear hand. You might also consider David Shennum's reverse (English to Egyptian) index to Faulkner's Concise Dictionary. The Cult of Ra is one that I don't see mentioned that frequently, but I consider excellent. Although some are more readable than others, I've never been unhappy with any of Thames & Hudson's "The Complete..." series. And as I've said, I'll happily read anything Dr. Tyldesley writes. She occasionally comes to a different conclusion than I'd expect, but I'm not the professional. Smile

Thankyou Montuhotep .I will bear that in mind.I have already read a few books by Joyce Tydlesley.She is my course tutor.The index to Faulkners dictionary sounds helpful.After struggling through Allen and Gardiner any help in hieroglyphs is helpful.

Shocked Wow! Well, if you get a chance, please pass along my appreciation for her writing. I have a dozen of her books already; she's great!

It was some years ago but I gobbled up Quirke's The Cult of Ra. A great book. And I consider Faulkner's dictionary indispensable, even if it is a bit too concise. I also have the Wörterbuch but can usually find what I need in Faulkner's dictionary.

I also second your advice about the English-to-Egyptian reference for Faulkner's dictionary. It's very useful. Wink
