The inscriptions called "graffiti" today are mostly an unofficial remembrance, a self-presentation, more often connected with vandalism than with art or socially respected self-expression. Visitors to the pyramids left Greek, Latin, and Arabic graffiti, often next to those from Pharaonic times. To these layers of human presence, modern tourist graffiti, starting with the 16th century onwards, and reaching the peak of their use in 19th century, was added. "It is certain that tourists are gradually spoiling the monuments of Egypt by writing their names on them. Persons of taste are irritated when they come across them, and the directors of the antiquities exhaust themselves in searching for hard words in which to censure such practices. And yet, if the archaeologists and historians of today would reflect a little, what fine fellows these inscriptions-makers are, and what an amount of ingenious work they are preparing for the students of the future." (Gaston Maspero: "New Light on Ancient Egypt"). Georges Emile Goyon (1905-1996). ~ Beinlich-Seeber 8923. N° de ref. de la librería 4850
