Colloquium on Mammisis of Egypt

The IFAO is organizing a colloquium on ‘Mammisis of Egypt’. Mammisis, mainly houses for birthing the divine child of each local triad, were multifunctional edifices. Our knowledge of these functions is based on our examination of surviving buildings either at Philae, Kom Ombo, Edfu or Dendera. Most of them are unfortunately ruined, but even more have been completely destroyed, such as those at Qus, Arment, Coptos and Athribis. Therefore, lots of information have been lost.
The colloquium is open for attendance to all scholars and academics interested in the subject on subscription in the limit of available places.

Colloque international
Du mercredi 27 mars 2019 au jeudi 28 mars 2019
