Edfou VII. By DIETER KURTH. Die Inschriften des Tempels von Edfu. Abteilung I, Ubersetzungen, vol. 2. Wiesbaden: HARRASSOWITZ VERLAG, 2004. Pp. xviii + 861. [euro]128. The term "Edfou" in the title of the book under review is the common French spelling of Edfu. The reference is to Emile Chassinat's Le temple d'Edfou, his multi-volume monumental edition of the hieroglyphic texts inscribed on the Horus temple at Edfu in southern Egypt, antiquity's best preserved architectural monument. The roman capital VII in the title refers to volume 7 of Chassinat's Le temple d'Edfou, published in 1932 by the French Institute of Archaeology in Cairo as volume 24 of the Memoires publies par les Membres de la Mission archeologique francaise au Caire.
