The monumental tombs of the Asasif from the 25th-26th Dynasties, between «cultural archive» and place of worship Valeria Tappeti, PhD student, Sapienza University of Rome. The monumental tombs, or Grabpalasten, of the Asasif valley, Thebes, from the 25th-26th Dynasties show selected excerpts of ancient funerary texts, from the Pyramid Texts to the Amduat. These texts and their associated scenes were not merely copied but also edited and they are repeated in several of these tombs. The editing of these texts, especially of the Book of the Dead, reveals the use of Musterbucher, arguably from temple archive, and also of the direct copy. This is evident, for example, in the case of the two-faced Anubis and of the Pyramids Texts selections in the pillared hall of Pabasa TT279 that are clearly inspired to the programme of Harwa TT37. Furthermore, the function of the Grabpalasten as «cultural archive» is probably bear out by the invitation to copy the texts inscribed in Padiamenope TT 33.
