Hey, I know I've been posting a lot lately on these forums, all of which are just personal issues I'm having with my own research. I'm not sure if this site was made for such a purpose or rather for discussions on Egyptology, but I'm gonna have to bug you guys again. This is my first assessment task that has had me attempting to locate and translate hieroglyphic texts unassisted. For the most part I've done fine, however there is the occasional hiccup.

I've been reading about a man named 'Pepinakhte' who squashed a conflict in Nubia during the 6th dynasty. He is quoted as referring to the Nubians as 'rebels' although I cannot fathom how Nubia could have revolted against Egypt in the 6th dynasty when the nation was under Egypt's control. The text I believe this comes from is MAEM 139. I would very much like to get a hold of this text. Any help would be appreciated.

That's perfect! I knew it would be somewhere in the urk volume. I must learn German sometime soon.

Thankyou.
