dc.description.abstractMany epithets used in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom to glorify kings are not unique to royal texts and can be traced in earlier laudatory autobiographies of non-royal persons. Here the phraseology of the Lahun Hymns to the 12th Dynasty king Senwosret III is analyzed, which had much in common with the texts of local rulers and high officials of the First Intermediate Period and the beginning of the Middle Kingdom. As the private and the royal spheres are traditionally separated in Egyptology, theories suggest that either royal eulogists had adopted phraseology originally used to celebrate local rulers, or that non-royals had borrowed from the lost royal repertoire. The contradiction in the directions of borrowing between private and royal texts would be irrelevant though, if we question the reality of absolute distinction between the two spheres.en_GB
