Examines in detail a specific group of inscribed material from the Memphite necropolis. The material dates to the late Old Kingdom-Herakleopolitan Period, and comes from tombs belonging to officials of various ranks and social standing. Some of the stelae and other inscribed fragments, offering tables, side pieces, and blocks have been published, while others are looked at here for the first time. A major focus is the examination of the tomb stelae, their orientation, development, and their inscriptions in comparison with contemporary stelae from provincial cemeteries, particularly Dendara, Naga-ed Deir, Akhmim, Ashmunein, Asyut, Edfu and Thebes.
