englischThe Petosiris necropolis at Tuna el-Gebel is one of the largest cemeteries of the Roman period in Egypt and belonged to the 'metropolis' Hermopolis Magna. This volume presents new archaeological and architectural-historical research results on the tomb houses of house groups 1 and 2, site management and roof drainage techniques. They provide extensive insights into construction methods, burial customs and ideas of the afterlife in a multicultural society. For the first time, numerous decorated tomb houses are comprehensively published and commented on. This volume was produced as part of the DFG research project "Celebrating with the Dead. Spatial Concepts and Burial Rituals in the Petosiris Necropolis of Tuna el-Gebel/Egypt".
