This informative publication is a continuation of the series documenting The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s excavations at the Middle Kingdom Egyptian site at Lisht. This volume covers the relief decoration from three different locations or structures. These reliefs furnish a welcome addition to the little-known relief decoration of pyramid temples of the Middle Kingdom. Presenting previously unpublished materials and including informative, high quality photographs of the relief blocks, this essential resource preserves the decoration at this endangered historic site and makes substantial contributions to the study of Middle Kingdom Egypt. 

Peter Jánosi is associate professor at the Institute of Egyptology, University Vienna.
