dc.description.abstractThe Kahun Papyrus was discovered by Flinders Petrie in 1889 at the Fayum site of Lahun and was eventually deposited in the London University College. The papyrus is dated to this period by a note on the recto which states the date as being the 29th year of the reign of Amenenhat III (c. 1825 BC). The text was published in facsimile, with hieroglyphic transcription and translation into English, by Griffith in 1898. It is badly fragmented. The textual material is similar in style to the Edwin Smith Papyrus but deals mainly with gynaecological matters and other problems affecting women. The gynecological text can be divided into thirty-four paragraphs, of which the first seventeen have a common format.en_GB
