Abstract [en]

The authors present two demotic ostraca from the Ashmolean Museum with instructions for computing Mercury's first and last evening and morning visibilities. The instructions are based on Babylonian systems A1and A2. They employ a mathematical formulation based on "elementary steps" that is not yet attested in Babylonia. As will be argued, the procedure shed new light on the role of native Egyptian scholars in the transfer of astral science from Babylonia to Egypt.
