Greek development: Fowden 1986, Henrichs 1984; Demotic elements: Kockelmann 2008, Stadler 2009; Quack 2003. Roeder 1927. 31 Greek influence has been detected in other genres of narrative as well. The Second Setne narrative contains a sort of katabasis where some of the dead are represented as plaiting ropes, which are then consumed by donkeys. 32 In 1927 Isidore L´evy argued for influence from the Greek Life of Pythagoras, which had a katabasis scene. Other scholars, such as Hoffmann, argue that the motif is old in Egypt and might be the source for the Greek tradition.
Stark 1989: 149, Merkelbach 1962: ‘Vorwort’. Volten 1956, referring to Stricker 1954; Schwartz 1950. Greek and Egyptian fiction 33 before the Vienna conference in 1952 he had published an edition of the ‘Story of Sinuhe’, preserved on an ostrakon in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. One thing to observe about the 1956 paper is that Barns almost entirely ignores Ker´enyi; he cites him only once (on p. 55, for the thesis that Egypt is the geographical centre in the world of the novel), but is silent about his argument for a relationship between the romances and Isiac cult, nor does he mention aretalogy.
Its story over this period was one of decline: in the Ptolemaic period Demotic language and script were still used for administration, alongside Greek, but from the Roman period, it mostly gave up that role, and became confined to recording literature and religious texts. Paradoxically, the Roman period is when a large number of Demotic literary manuscripts date from, as scribes in temples persevered in their mission to preserve the ancient traditions. The understanding of Demotic Egyptian literature has seen exponential growth in recent years.
