Pianchy/Piye. Between Two Worlds

 = Paper =

A. SPALINGER, "Pianchy/Piye. Between Two Worlds", in Chr. KARLSHAUSEN and Cl. OBSOMER (ed.), "De la Nubie à Qadech. La guerre dans l'Égypte ancienne – From Nubia to Kadesh. War in Ancient Egypt", Brussels, 2016.
This is a preliminary study which deals with a series of aspects presented in Piye's great stela at Gebel Barkal. Of particular importance are the following: the text's reliance upon older narrative formats which do not particularly reflect the New Kingdom; the "non-Egyptian" attitudes of the Kushite monarch; the absence of booty lists. Of particular importance is the self-conception of Piye himself, a study that demands a comparison with Egyptian ideology instead of a mere contrastive position.
