The Sheikh Fadl Inscription in Its Literary and Historical Context

The Sheikh Fadl Inscription in Its Literary and Historical Context <jats:sec> <jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>The fragmentary Sheikh Fadl inscription from the first half of the fifth century B.C.E. comprises the earliest narratives about the Inaros of Athribis who took part in an Egyptian rebellion against the Assyrians in the seventh century, and who is known especially from the much later 'Cycle of Inaros' in Demotic from the Ptolemaic and Roman periods.
