Abstract: »The author discusses a text part (C, 1-9, on the verso) from the 30th Dynasty El-Arish naos (Ismailia Museum No. 2248), containing a possible reference to a rape by Geb of his mother Tefnut after the death of his father Shu. After mentioning the scholarly opinion on this subject, she provides a commentary to the text, which has the passage about the rape in line 6 (aHa.n iT.n.f sy m awAyt). The author rejects a translation referring to a rape, but cannot offer a definite solution (a struggle for power between mother and son?).« (Source: Online Egpytological Bibliography)
