Nur für Erwachsene - political correctness auf Altägyptisch? Neue Lesungen und Interpretationen der biographischen Inschrift des Gaufürsten Henqu

In his autobiographical inscription, Henqu contrasts the situation that prevailed in the 12th nome of Lower Egypt before he became nomarch with that of his tenure. He purposefully exploits the visual potential of the hieroglyphic script by describing the chaos to supplement the information conveyed by language. Failure to recognize this feature of the text has led to several misunderstandings of its meaning in earlier attempts at translating it. Of particular interest are Henqu's remarks on his personal relationship to the divine and his recommendation that the young be denied access to his characterization of the era's chaotic conditions.
