abstract

Funerary stele found near the great Sphinx of Giza, Egypt, and dated approximately to the second half of the fourth century BC. Demophilos imagines that the daughter, prematurely disappeared, fills up the painful fate of the father who has survived her. The Homeric language and the recurring motives of greek funeral poetics on the theme of mors immatura betray a strong and conscious cultural identity. Who built this monument could be a descendant of those Greek immigrants who pharao Amasis moved to Menfi from the settlements (stratopeda) of the Delta, or someone who settled there after the conquest of Alexander the Great.
