In the tradition of Calderini and Daris's Dizionario dei nomi geographici e topografici, this work offers a survey of all toponyms occurring in Demotic and Abnormal Hieratic texts from Egypt. For every toponym a basic identification and some bibliographical information is given, together with the references to all the texts (both documentary and literary) where the toponym occurs. For the moment 262 Abnormal Hieratic references are listed for 24 different places, and 12.672 Demotic references for 1098 different toponyms. For every attestation the name of the toponym is given as it occurs in the source, with a translation of its immediate context. To limit the number of pages, not all the available information has been copied in this printed volume, but further bibliography and additional remarks are accessible in the Trismegistos online database itself.
A great help compiling these data was the (unpublished) master dissertation of Katelijn Vandorpe, Egyptische geografische elementen in Griekse transcriptie [Egyptian geographical elements in Greek transcription] (1988), which is now also available as a pdf at http://www.trismegistos.org/top.php.
