Zbynek Zaba, The Rock Inscriptions of Lower Nubia, Czechoslovak Concession, Charles University of Prague, Czechoslovak Institute of Egyptology in Prague and in Cairo Publications, Volume I, Prague 1974

This huge book records 293 inscriptions on rock from the area which the Czech Institute took responsibility for surveying as the waters of the Aswan dam. This was a region 100 km long, extending between the famous temples of Kalabsha and Gerf Hussein. Most of the inscriptions are in Egyptian, dating from the 1st Dynasty down to the Coptic period with a particularly large number from the early 12th Dynasty (shedding new light on the conquest of Nubia under Amenemhet I and Senwosret I). The remaining inscriptions were written in Greek, Latin, Carian, Meroitic and Aramaic. Each inscription is translated, discussed and given both location and date. Each is also shown in a black and white photograph and transcribed.
