Trois biographies d’Ancien Empire revisitées.

Three Old Kingdom biographies are investigated in this paper. A new translation is offered for two of the property deeds of Metjen, the famous official of the Early IVth Dyn. Dating criteria show that the short biography of Hetep-her-ni-ptah also belongs to the same period, if not slightly earlier. It includes the very first known example of the famous sentence «this had never been done», connected to a royal benefaction granted to the official. Finally, some parts of the recently published biography of Hezi (Saqqara, Teti Cemetery, VIth Dyn.) are reinvestigated.
