Publisher's blurb:
In addition to reporting on the archaeological excavations carried out between 2000 and 2007, the present work collects numerous in-depth studies and first sets of data on the findings resulting from the activity that the Mission of the Istituto Papirologico «G. Vitelli», now directed by Rosario Pintaudi, has been leading for many years in El Sheikh ’Abadah, in Middle Egypt. Among the most significant contributions, the work presents geological research done by experts of the University of Florence on the Gebel upland, east of the ancient city of Antinoupolis, and coins from the treasure of gold findings discovered in 1975, now finally documented completely. The volume contains an archaeological map of the whole site.
