At the Fourth International Congress of Egyptologists, held in Munich in the autumn of 1985, two large red-bound volumes of Labib Habachi's The Sanctuary of Heqaib were on display and a minute's silence was observed in his memory. His death marked the end of an era. Until his last days, whole generations of Egyptologists were indebted to him for his help and expertise, not only on scholarly matters but also in regard to fieldwork. Egyptology has become a specialized science that has fragmented into no fewer than twenty-one categories. One can imagine how heartily Habachi would have approved of the return, through the Recovered Antiquities Department, of artifacts smuggled out of Egypt, and picture his delight at the continued success of exhibitions of Egyptian antiquities abroad.
