RETURN TO THE OLD SOURCE. (Found in the archives of the Griffith Institute, Oxford)
Some time ago, while discussing the date of the enthronement of the Kushite king Irikeamannote, the author of this article revised one of the indications of his so-called Great Inscription. Let me remind you that this indication at one time suggested that the mentioned king was for some time the co-ruler of his predecessor, Talahamani (1). The special significance of this evidence lies in the fact that of all the examples-very controversial in general, which are based on the long-standing hypothesis of M. F. McAdam about the existence of such a practice in Kush, just the given one looks the most plausible. The final solution to the problem would allow us to answer the fundamentally important question - whether the joint rule of kings in ancient Sudan was really possible. The problem, however, is complicated by the fact that the corresponding fragment is a handwritten copy of the Large Inscription Irikeamannote (= Kawa IX), which was published by McAdam in 1949. (2) and which still serves as the main source for its study, raises serious doubts, as well as the photo that supports it. Of course, the best way to test these doubts would be to re-examine the body itself in situ at the so-called T Temple in Kava. However, after a report on this topic was published in the materials of the Turin Congress of Egyptology (3), the author, thanks to the kind assistance of his British colleagues, became aware that the original Large Inscription is practically no longer available: the sanctuary is almost completely covered with sand since the last excavations (1935-1936), and new ones in the foreseeable future not planned. Another possibility of verification could be provided by the material used at one time by McAdam himself in the preparation of the"Temples of Kava". This may have been preserved in the archives of the Griffith Institute, where McAdam's work was published. In addition, it was the Griffiths who played the main role in the archaeological research of the Kava monumen ...
