Mrs. Tsenhor

American University in Cairo Press

Somewhere between 530 and 526 BCE Tsenhor’s second-husband-to-be, Psenese, received his share of the parental inheritance, which probably means that he was to start his own household. Excursus on the conquest of Egypt by Cambyses and his alleged criminal behavior, including a reassessment of the evidence purporting that the well-known Egyptian dignitary Wedjahorresne was a collaborator. Description of one day in March 517 BCE on which Tsenhor and her husband Psenese had four Demotic contracts written to arrange their marital property and the shares their children would receive. Excursus on the 4,500-year-old contract of Wepemnefret, one of the sons of Pharaoh Kheops.

Keywords:   Inheritance, Marriage, Demotic, Cambyses, Wedjahorresne, Wepemnefret, Siut trial, Adoption Papyrus
