A Biographical Dictionary of Ancient Egypt contains more than two hundred entries on important historical and cultural figures, as well as some less well known individuals in Egypts long history (ca. 3100 b.c.-ca. A.D. 600). Not only are rulers and members of their families listed (Akhenaten, Nefertiti), but also other significant figures who had particularly impressive or interesting tombs (Cheops, Tutankhamun), who showed great military prowess (Sethos I, Ramesses II), or who had special literary or other skills (Ipuwer, Manetho). Also featured are foreigners with whom the Egyptians came into contact (Alexander the Great), and major classical writers (Herodotus) who have left vivid descriptions of ancient Egypt. The entries are based on original source material noted in the bibliographical references. A brief history of ancient Egypt, a glossary, a chronology of dynasties, and four maps enhance this reference work, which will be useful to scholars and all general readers interested in ancient Egypt.
