Masterskie po obrabotke kamnia na Kom-Tumane (Memfis) [Stoneworking ateliers at Kom Tuman (Memphis)]

The paper describes stoneworking ateliers that functioned in the Late and Ptolemaic periods in the northern part of ancient Memphis. These workshops were part of a large industrial complex, which has been discovered by the Russian Archaeological Mission at Memphis at the site of Kom Tuman. The ateliers produced a wide range of goods — starting from vessels and daily life objects to sculptural portraits of kings. It is likely that the workshops were part of a palatial complex and were controlled by the royal administration.
